The Fans have Spoken and They Want Ten Man Push and The Custom Taylor Band
Entire Summer Soundtrack Now Available for Download on TheGlen.com
By: WGI Staff on 1/28/2010
Ten Man Push and The Custom Taylor Band will keep the night rocking on Saturday, August 7.
The votes are in and in a race too close to call, the fans have decided that the rock song “Big” by Ten Man Push and the country song “Down at the Honky Tonk” by The Custom Taylor Band are the top songs on this year’s Summer Soundtrack to The Glen. Both songs will be used for the background music in the TV commercial for the Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips at The Glen NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend, August 5-8, which will debut during the broadcast of the Daytona 500 on Sunday, February 14. Each band will also perform LIVE on the Red Cat Summer Stage during New York’s largest weekend sporting event on Saturday, August 7. The concert is included with the price of admission and weekend tickets start at only $60.
In November 2009, over 45 New York State-based bands answered The Glen’s call for them to submit their best songs to be considered for inclusion in the soundtrack. Once all entries were received, the staff of WGI selected the top eight that best represented the wide variety of events at the historic road course. Fans then had three weeks to vote for their favorite song on TheGlen.com to determine the top song of them all. Fans voted early and often during that time period and once everything was tabulated it was determined that the race between Ten Man Push and The Custom Taylor Band was too close to call. Since rock and country were obviously the most popular genres among WGI fans it only made sense to declare both the winner and give fans the types of music they demanded. Fans can download the entire Summer Soundtrack to The Glen for FREE by simply going to www.TheGlen.com/summersoundtrack.
