Riverbend headliner Dustin Lynch has partnered with his Tullahoma neighbor and VideoBomb app developer Chad Marcum for a VIP giveaway. Announced in Chattanooga Wednesday, the contest gives fans a chance to win two VIP tickets including a Meet & Greet with Lynch, and seats at one of his upcoming concerts.

To enter, fans will download the VideoBomb app from the iTunes store, select Dustin Lynch’s video “Good Girl” from the “Music Video” tab, then create a VideoBomb by inserting themselves into the “Good Girl” video. Then they will publish the video in the app with the hashtag #GoodGirlVideoBomb to be entered into the contest. VideoBombs are also saved to the users’ camera roll and can be shared on their own social media with the same hashtag. 

“Tullahoma and Chattanooga are practically neighbors so we wanted to do something special for all of Dustin’s fans in Chattanooga and the folks who drive in for the Riverbend Festival,” said Mr. Marcum. “Our communities have a lot in common – including gigabit internet – which is a big reason I became an app developer. We feel right at home in Chattanooga, and we are thrilled to launch this contest the day that Dustin is performing at Riverbend.” 

VideoBomb is the brainchild of Mr. Marcum and music video directors John and Matt Edde and launched just a year ago. Mr. Marcum credits his upbringing in Tullahoma and the community’s thriving entrepreneurial scene for the inspiration to break into the field.

“VideoBomb is doing for video what the photobomb did for still photography,” said co-creator Matt Edde. “So many fans today engage with music online and through YouTube and we’re giving them a simple one-button option to incorporate themselves into their favorite music videos, then share it with their friends.”

Roy Exum: Who Is This ‘New Voice’?

It’s easy for me to say that I either know, or know about, almost every person running in November for the state legislature. Yet when I describe Lemon Williams as the most exciting of the bunch, that’s because he's the only guy I had never heard of when he picked up his qualifying papers. He just turned out the best political aspirant I have had a conversation with in the last ... (click for more)
