Continuing its ongoing commitment to supporting musical talent and celebrating their shared passion, Wild Turkey, along with Creative Director Matthew McConaughey, announces the return of 101 Bold Nights, an annual program designed to showcase bold storytelling and support emerging musicians who help shape the culture in their communities.
This year, Wild Turkey is building upon this program with the launch of a mentorship competition, #101BoldNightsMusicMentorship, an initiative developed in collaboration with Spaceflight Records, a non-profit record label dedicated to promoting and advancing talented musicians. The competition seeks to find and support emerging musical artist who has demonstrated a passion for trusting their spirit and telling bold stories through their craft. The winner will receive a personalized mentorship with Spaceflight Records.
“Music shapes culture,” said Wild Turkey Creative Director Matthew McConaughey. “It creates community, brings people together and offers a soundtrack to life’s most important moments. Along with Wild Turkey and its partner Spaceflight Records, I am thrilled to announce the 101 Bold Nights Music Mentorship to support emerging artists who are crafting inspiring music.”
In addition to the #101BoldNightsMusicMentorship, Wild Turkey will continue to highlight its passion for the music space with a presence at musical festivals and cultural events in Kentucky, Tennessee, and Texas, most notably at the 101 Bold Nights flagship benefit concert in Austin, Texas on Oct. 8th. The concert will include live performances by Heartless Bastards – the 2021-2022 Austin Music Awards’ Band of the Year – and emerging artists the Greyhounds and Kalu & The Electric Joint, providing an opportunity for music lovers to sip bourbon while enjoying new tracks and learning about the stories behind them. All bar proceeds from this concert will go to support Spaceflight Records.
