The intersection of music and presidential politics took another interesting turn Monday morning when Arizona radio station 102.5 KNIX held a contest offering free country music concert tickets for a year to the first person willing to have a giant stamp of Donald Trump tattooed on their lower back. After three other contestants chickened out, 38 year-old Travis Gaarder now has proof of his love of country displayed across his backside.
The winner of The Ben & Matt Show's "Trump Stamp" challenge spoke to Billboard by phone from his parked truck on Tuesday (March 22), where he admitted, "The only reason why I did it was for the concert tickets" - really any concert tickets, as Gaarder had no particular band in mind when he entered the competition. "Any of 'em would do for me," he said. "I just like music."
