There is a rising star in the world of country and country pop music. Who? Taylor Swift, born on December 13, 1989.

According to Wikipedia in their write up, “In 2006, she released her debut single “Tim McGraw”, which peaked at number six on the Billboard country charts. Later in October 2006, she released her self-titled debut album, which produced five hit singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts and was certified 3× Multi-Platinum by the RIAA. The New York Times described Swift as “one of pop’s finest songwriters, country’s foremost pragmatist and more in touch with her inner life than most adults”.[3]”

So what’s this young woman up to now? Well, check out this sweepstakes being promoted by CMT on our New Features page to see all the greatest information about the On Tour with Taylor Swift Sweepstakes.

Oh my, 1Sweeps blog has recently been informed that we no longer will be promoting 1Sweepstakes.com.

While the two-management team of 1Sweeps was sad to learn the news, Dolly and Pam put their heads together and came up with a viable solution that we think you will like.

1Sweeps is not going away! Instead of being routed to a third-party contest/sweepstakes site, we will continue to write posts highlighting contests that we’ve seen in the past that you like AND we will route you direct to the sponsor of that contest.

How does that sound? You get the benefit of direct routing to the sweepstakes that you like. BUT the question is — What do you like?

Feel free to comment here and let us know whether you want us to target just the U.S. as we have in the past – or should we open it up to U.S. and Canada? Our goal is that we provide timely announcements to new and popular contests and sweepstakes.

Be watching now!

How many of you have had words that just seem to trip up your tongue and have you saying some pretty weird stuff? Did you know that there are actual tongue twister contests that spur the competitive nature in all of us?

Yes, that’s right. There are actual contests where people will try to say difficult phrases as many times as they can, as fact as they can, and all without tripping up and making a mistake.

Let me explain a little bit about what a tongue twister is. Think of it this way – it’s a short sentence or phrase that is VERY tricky to say fast. You know, I’m sure you remember as a kid having a contest with your best friend to see who could say, “how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?” Remember those days? Aren’t contests fun?

Here’s a fun site for you to look at: Tongue Twisters Galore. Maybe you have kids in your family that have birthdays right around the corner and you need a quick idea for fun things to do at birthday parties. Here’s a great idea – split the guests into two or more teams and have contests to see who can say tongue twisters without slipping up. The winner could get a prize.

Let me give you some examples:

  • If you must cross a course cross cow across a crowded cow crossing, cross the cross coarse cow across the crowded cow crossing carefully.
  • A noise annoys an oyster, but a noisy noise annoys an oyster more!
  • Catch a can canner canning a can as he does the cancan, amd you’ve caught a can-canning can-canning can canner!
  • I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! (Ummm, good 🙂 )
  • If two witches would watch two watches, which witch would watch which watch?
  • The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick. (I can see why this one is a Guiness Book of World Records winner, can’t you?)

So my friends, contests come in all kinds and can be loads of fun. Let me leave you with this tongue twister to send you on your way. How many yaks could a yak pack pack if a yak pack could pack yaks? Say that quickly if you can.
