Cricket Communications, a cell phone and wireless provider, has partnered with Country Music artist Adam Gregory for a multi-platform promotion.The partnership will include in-store appearances at Cricket retail locations, exclusive mobile content including custom ringback tones and interviews, and cross-promotion of Gregory's fall club tour dates with partner radio stations nationwide.  Gregory will visit 22 Cricket markets through the end of the year. He will appear in Cricket stores in each city to meet fans, sign autographs and preview advance music from his forthcoming debut album in the United States. Fans will have the chance to win concert tickets and custom Cricket merchandise.  Several lucky fans at each store will have the opportunity to interview Gregory and learn about his life as a touring artist. Fan interviews from each market will be posted on the local Cricket micro-site, Gregory's Web site and the 'C.A.G.E.' (Cricket Adam Gregory Experience) microsite featuring interview videos, photos, information on the exclusive ringback tones and more. Gregory will select the best interview at the end of his tour, and the winner will receive a trip to a 2009 Adam Gregory concert and exclusive behind-the-scenes access to life on the road with Country Music's newest rising star. "I am so honored to be partnering with such an innovative mobile provider like Cricket," said Gregory. "They are giving my fans a glimpse into what life is like on the road.  This has always been a dream of mine, and it's exciting for me to be able to share that with my fans and hopefully inspire other future musicians."
