Tortuga Festival Brings Fans “Once In A Lifetime” Experiences

Tortuga and CMT Team Up to Bring Fans Unforgettable Fun with Kip Moore and Kelsea Ballerini

Three things we love about springtime: warm weather, new country tunes, and Tortuga Music Festival.

This year’s festival was last weekend (April 15-17), and we were thrilled to send two lucky fans on the trip of a lifetime.

Winner Roxanne got to spend an afternoon with the amazing Kelsea Ballerini, and they had a ball. Roxanne was a Tortuga first-timer, who told us that “meeting and hanging out with Kelsea was a once in a life time opportunity which I will never forget!”

“I am a shy person but Kelsea was so sweet and made me feel comfortable. It was nice talking to her and learning more about her. I am so happy I was able to meet and hang out with her,” Roxanne told us.

The ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year also put on a killer show to a huge crowd on the beach.

Winner Kelly got to spend some quality time with Kip Moore, who put on a private show for a few fans on his tour bus. “It was great to hear his ‘real’ voice and to know that it is just as good as it sounds on the radio,” Kelly told us.

Lucky for us, Kelly isn’t the only one who gets to see Kip’s magical performance. Check out the 360˚ video below (use the arrows in the top left corner to move the camera angle around) to see his full private show.
