Tailgate Giveaway, Week 6: Campus Essentials from Only Southern Made & Dillards

3 Tailgate Giveaway, Week 6: Campus Essentials from Only Southern Made & DillardsRaise your pom poms, Southerners – it’s time for football in the South! Give us a Saturday,  the SEC, and a tall glass of sweet tea (or bourbon) and you can find us at the tailgate, cheering on our favorite teams. In honor of this fall tradition, we’re going to be giving away items every Wednesday that’ll take your tailgate party-throwin’ to the next level.

If there’s one thing that every tailgate needs to amp up the excitement, it’s great music. A well-constructed playlist is the determining factor between an average gathering and a full-fledged fiesta, and, in the South, half the fun is the pre-game party. With a high-quality Acoustic Research bluetooth speaker from our friends at Dillard’s, your tailgate will be the most popular spot. This speaker is both stylish and functional, with two 20-watt amplifiers and 360˚ of LED lighting. And, it’s weatherproof.

When you’re done rocking out in the parking lot, pick up your new go-to accessory – a monogrammed clear clutch from Only Southern Made. Due to new “clear bag” regulations at SEC campuses including LSU, Auburn, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Texas A&M and South Carolina, this stadium-approved (and stylish!) wristlet will let you breeze through security without any problems. Customize your bag to the college or monogram of your choice.

The winner of this week’s giveaway will receive two highly sought-after tailgating essentials: the waterproof and wireless Acoustic Research Hatteras Indoor/Outdoor Bluetooth Speakers from Dillard’s, and a customizable clear wristlet from Only Southern Made.

Tell us your favorite tailgating song (or one that gets you pumped up for the game!). Comment below for a chance to win. Official rules here.

    I have a special playlist that I bring with me each time I tailgate with friends and my favorite song on it would most definitely be “Chicken Fried” by Zac Brown Band!! It’s just such a fun upbeat song that get everyone pumped up for the game!! A couple of guys in our group always get to the stadium early to get the best spot to set everything up and we all bring something yummy to throw on the grill!
    I just found a appetizer and dip recipe handwritten inside of a cookbook that my great grandmother passed on to me that I’m anxious to make and bring to our tailgate party this weekend! Hanging out with friends, listening to awesome music, enjoying great food and drinks are a guaranteed win for us even if our team doesn’t win the game!!

    My favorite tailgating song is “waiting all day for Sunday night” by Faith Hill. Our tailgates do last all day when we have a Sunday night game! I know other artists have taken over for Faith Hill singing this NFL theme song, but her version is the best and makes me instantly think of football! I’m excited that my favorite Mississippi girl and her Louisiana guy are starting their tour in New Orleans 4/7/2017!

    I have a mix of Katie Perry’s “Eye of the Tiger”, Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive”, Steve Earle’s “Mr Gold and Mr Mud” (featuring his son), the theme from Top Gun, and Hank Williams Jr “All My Rowdy Friends”. These selections would sound great on the speakers!

    My favorite tailgating song that gets me pumped up for the game is “Welcome to The Jungle” by Guns & Roses. It gets the whole crowd pumped and ready for a challenge.

    The best tailgates involve football, good food, rowdy friends and loud music. My fellow Louisiana native Hank Williams Jr. combines all the elements of my ideal tailgate in his song “All my roudy friends are coming over tonight.” I’ve attended tailgates that were mild and involved family board games with my in-laws in the back of my wife’s SUV (I’m not kidding) and have attended some wild tailgates with my co-workers that would not be for the faint of heart. The goal is to celebrate friendship and cheer on your alma mater or city. But I do get pumped up when I think of my rowdy friends coming over tonight for a tailgate and party!

    As a University of South Carolina alumna, I love “Shake Your Tail Feather” by the Blues Brothers. This fun song is the perfect tribute to our mascots Cocky and Sir Big Spur. Go Gamecocks!

    My favorite tailgating song is “Parking Lot Party” by Lee Brice. I think it adequately sums up a “tailgate buzz sipping on suds” and he even mentions tailgating without the need to buy tickets. Some of my favorite game memories are watching the game on a TV in the back of the truck. As a southern boy, Lee Brice knows how we tailgate and this is the perfect jam for the occasion!
