Earlier this year, Chevrolet launched an open song contest for unsigned musicians with Music Nation, the online home for independent music, to offer new artists priceless exposure in Europe. When the contest closed on March 4th, more than 700 artists registered on for their chance to be featured on the exclusive Chevrolet Legends CD Vol. 2 alongside some of the biggest artists in music today.

Wayne Brannon, Executive Director, Chevrolet Europe, says: “We were amazed by the creativity and professionalism of all the songs entered in our contest. It was indeed very hard to make a final decision on the winner. In the end, we had two songs, both of which we thought truly represent the spirit of Chevrolet. Finally, we decided that Jaymie Gerard wins the Chevrolet Song Contest with her song “Chevy in Drive,” and we decided to feature the runner-up, “Down in Dixie” by David Lane, on the Chevrolet Legends CD as well.”

For decades, many artists have featured Chevrolet and its cars in their songs. To date, more than 600 songs mention Chevrolet in their lyrics. With the song contest, Chevrolet reached out to find the legends of tomorrow.

The Chevrolet Legends Vol. 2 CD is exclusive to the pan-European Dream Garage promotion campaign and will not be available in music stores. Everyone participating in the Chevrolet Dream Garage campaign will not only have a chance to win the 1st prize of three Chevrolet cars, but they will also have a fair chance to receive a copy of the limited edition of Chevrolet Legends Vol. 2.

The songs “Chevy in Drive” by Jaymie Gerard and “Down in Dixie” by David Lane will also soon be available on for free download.
