A country music song from a major Nashville artist using Wikipedia as the main theme of the song


A Nashville song about Wikipedia to get more country music fans involved in Wikipedia in any direction they can


Singing about Wikipedia in a country music song advertises the site without looking like an advertisement (i.e., I'm gonna buy me a Mercury and cruise it up a down the road).

Key Questions

  • Do we want a female or a male artist?
  • Should we look at the Grand Ole Opry, nightclub, or at a recording studio?
  • Should we hire an established artist or a newcomer to the industry?

Potential Costs

recording and artist fees, legal clearance, advertising costs to radio stations, advertising costs to television, getting people to like the song
