NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Cricket Wireless is going country again and bringing its popular Muve Music service to the 2012 Capitol Street Party 5. Cricket is proud to be the Stage Level sponsor of this year's event, which brings its wildly popular, and free-to-the-public, street party to Lower Broadway. The event features headliner Luke Bryan along with up-and-coming artists Kelleigh Bannen and Jon Pardi. Cricket and Muve Music will be on-site to get the party started early with an interactive fan experience, fun giveaways and demonstrations of its award-winning Muve Music service. Muve Music is the first music service designed specifically for a wireless phone offering unlimited song downloads, ringtones and ringback tones from a catalog of millions of songs.
"This is definitely not a party to miss!" shares Luke Bryan. "We promise to make this a great night of music in the heart of Nashville."
Muve Music fans are increasingly consuming country music on the service and are always on the lookout for new, up-and-coming artists and bands within the Country music genre. As Muve Music's overall catalog of songs continues to grow, the service is expanding its library of Country music to meet this ever-growing demand. Country music fans are not only listening to popular hits by award-winning artists, but also leveraging Muve Music's unlimited music download platform to discover new Country music artists.
"Connecting artists and fans is what Muve Music is all about and we're thrilled to bring that experience to Capitol Street Party 5 this year," said Geoff Edds, senior manager, label management and artist programs for Muve Music. "We're excited to partner with Capitol Nashville and the other sponsors to present a great night of Country music for fans while also raising money and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project."
The Capitol Street Party is one of the most exciting events we do all year," explains Cindy Mabe, SVP, Marketing, Capitol Records Nashville. "Bringing our street party ambassador and country music superstar Luke Bryan to headline a free show for our town of Nashville will insure this is the biggest party we throw all year long. This party represents what's great about this city…it's all about the music."
