This summer Nissan and Blake Shelton teamed up for the “Take Me to Blake” sweepstakes, offering entrants the chance to win a VIP experience at the final stop of Shelton’s “Doing it to Country Songs” tour.

Congratulations to Diane and Daniel Reyes of California as well as Thomas and Lisa Jonson of Wisconsin, the two grand prize winners of the Take Me To Blake sweepstakes. Each couple received an all-expenses paid trip to Colorado Springs, CO to attended the American Kickoff at Falcon Stadium on September 16. At the concert they enjoyed full-access to the VIP tent, complete with its impressive spread of food and beverage, a meet and greet with the country music superstar, and prime seats to watch Blake Shelton on stage.
In addition to meeting Shelton and taking in his performance - along with supporting acts Big & Rich and the Oak Ridge Boys - they were treated to a two-night stay at Colorado Springs’ century-old historic 5-star Broadmoor Hotel. With an approximate retail value of $4,250, hopefully the grand prize was an exciting experience that they won’t soon forget.
Over the summer months the Take Me to Blake sweepstakes invited people around the country to win one of the two available grand prizes. One grand prize was awarded to entrants who entered through nissanusa.com, Nissan’s social media accounts and other promotional events. The other grand prize was awarded to people who made their entries at Nissan dealership around the country.
Thomas Jonson, the winner of the dealership prize, shared this story about what brought him in the day he made his entry:
“My wife, Lisa and I purchased our first brand new car back in 1989 and it was a Nissan Sentra. It was an excellent car for us and our growing family. Our youngest daughter is now 21 years old and is in need of a dependable car. So we drove to the Nissan dealership to take a look at the Sentra, Altima and Maxima. We just want her to have the great service and confidence in her vehicle we had. She has not decided as she is going to college and this is a big commitment but I am sure she will be happy if she gets a Nissan. And that is when we signed up for the Blake Shelton Sweepstakes!”
