UPDATE:  The winner of this contest has been selected and notified!  Thanks to everyone that participated! 

We’re excited to announce the latest secret show from Southwest’s partner The Artists Den!  Next Wednesday, Feb. 9, Robert Plant will rock a very intimate concert in Nashville for some very lucky fans.
 
As you all know, Southwest has a Whole Lotta LUV for our Customers and online fans and that’s why we want to send one lucky winner and a guest to this very exclusive concert!  For a taste of how awesome these events are visit www.theartistsden.com.

The Artists Den has an amazing knack for finding one-of-a-kind locations for these secret shows.  Robert Plant, the “Golden God,” will be performing at a famous location  in Nashville. Lucky for all of you, Southwest has a backstage pass to the show and wants to get you in on it.

 
To win a trip to this amazing gig, we’re asking all you fans out there to create a caption for this photo which is from a past Artists Den concert and has a connection with this show. You can post your caption in the comments section below (make sure you are a registered blog user so we can email you if you win!), or you can tweet us your caption and use the hashtag #WholeLottaLUV. All blog comments must be approved by a moderator, so don't get discouraged if your comment doesn't show up right away.

So, ready, set, caption.  We can’t promise you that you’ll find the stairway to heaven, but we do promise the winner that you’ll have “Kashmir” to keep you warm and you’ll get the chance to see a little “angel dance”!

Be sure to read the rules below for the judging criteria.  The winner will be notified by Monday 2/7/2011 by 6:30 pm CST.

I am also a big fan of Robert Plant (in addition to Southwest Air) and would love to see this show! The last time I saw him live was the Now and Zen Tour, which was great. Here's hoping for a miracle 🙂

If you enjoyed Patty Griffin in concert at the Angel Orensanz Foundation for the Arts, why not fly to Nashville aboard Southwest Airlines and see Robert Plant and The Band of Joy, brought to you by The Artists Den.

"A KISS in Time, The Song Remains the Same, we're Falling in LOVE Again. If the mountains should crumble to the sea, there would still be you and me." (A Kiss in Time is one of Patty Griffin's albums, The Song Remains the Same is a Led Zeppelin Song, and Falling in Love Again is off of Plant's & Griffin's new Band of Joy album. I also added a lyric from Thank You by Led Zeppelin)
