ZIPPO AND BUCKY COVINGTON JOIN FORCES
Nashville, TN- Zippo, one of the world's leading manufacturers of pocket lighters, is partnering with Bucky Covington as the title sponsor of the artist's tour dates. Zippo's sponsorship will kick off when Bucky joins Dierks Bentley's "Throttle Wide Open" tour, sponsored by Bud Light.
"It's going to be so cool to have Zippo with me on the road as my tour sponsor," says Bucky. "I'm a big fan of their products so it's a great match."
Before joining Dierks Bentley on his "Throttle Wide Open" tour in February, Bucky will pay a visit to Zippo headquarters in Bradford, PA to meet and perform for the company's employees and executives.
"It's great to work with a talented new young artist like Bucky who is also a big Zippo fan," says Zippo President Greg Booth. "He should prove to be a great evangelist for our brand."
