You can totally blame this post on Jeff Gordon as it is totally his fault I got to thinking about this in the first place. How, you ask? Well it all started with a tweet. Jeff Gordon tweeted that fans could vote for what song he would use as his intro song for the Bristol race this coming weekend. What a great idea, I thought. Tony should let his fans vote because it seems he ALWAYS uses Kid Rock…and I think he should mix it up a little bit. Which then got me to thinking…if I could pick an intro song for Tony Stewart what would I pick?
Now first off, I have to admit that High School Amy would be HORRIFIED at what I listen to these days. High School Amy was very into the hard rock/heavy metal scene. Modern Day Amy will listen to nearly anything from Metallica (still a favorite) to Craig Morgan to the Black Eyed Peas to 80′s Duran Duran with a lot of different music in between. Serious you should see my ipod…a lot of the music on it would make High School Amy run for the hills screaming TRAITOR! SELL-OUT! WANNABE!!! But I digress because this post isn’t about MY musical tastes so much as it is about picking a new intro song for Tony Stewart. Not that he’ll use any of our ideas. As a matter of fact, I am pretty darn sure he won’t even see or hear about this.
But this is something I have put a lot of thought into…and scoured my music library wondering if I were charged with picking Tony’s intro song what would I choose. It took me awhile but I finally figured out what I would pick as Tony’s Intro song and I will reveal that to you- tomorrow morning. But it left me curious…what would YOU choose?
UPDATE: The contest is now over. The winners will be announced soon.
So to make this fun…I have a little contest: Leave me a comment on this entry with the song you would choose for your favorite driver. It can be Tony. It can be Jeff Gordon. Or Jimmie Johnson or Dale Earnhardt Junior or Ryan Newman (whom I hear is picking the theme to the Dukes of Hazzard) or any driver you want. Make sure you leave a valid email address in your comment so I can contact you if you win. I will pick two winners who will win some Goodyear racing swag (there will be a male winner and a female winner because one shirt is a men’s shirt and one shirt is a woman’s shirt…but each the male winner and the female winner will be chosen randomly). That’s it. That’s all you have to do…comment here with the name of a driver and a song you think represents that driver. You have until the drop of the green flag on Sunday March 20th to submit your comment.
