Earlier this summer, in one of our Nuts About Southwest blog posts, we announced a contest to give an aspiring musician the chance to “Take the Stage in Nashville.” The winner received the exclusive opportunity to perform not only Live at 35® on a flight into Nashville, but also onstage at Nashville’s Musicians Corner concert.
We had many great and talented artists enter this contest, making it a tough decision for our panel of judges! Our judges selected one very talented and deserving artist: Drew Schofield, a resident of Denver.
On Friday, September 6, Drew came onboard the flight from Denver to Nashville, surprising and delighting our Customers with a concert at 35,000 feet! Among those in the audience were his wife, Chelsea, and eight-month-old son, Austin. Performing “Canvas” and “Audrey’s Song,” in addition to his winning submission that he wrote especially for the contest, Drew proved to be quite the Inflight Entertainment hit!

Hope you enjoy the video, which illustrates Drew’s journey from start to finish.
