Fandango, the nation’s leading digital destination for moviegoers and fans, announced plans to debut new episodes of “I Love Movies” featuring Darius and Reba in front of thousands of Country fans at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville on June 11-14. “I Love Movies” is an original video series that showcases cultural influencers across the globe, sharing personal stories of how movies have touched their lives.
Episodes featuring Darius and Reba will air on the screens at the nightly concerts at LP Field and at other venues throughout the four-day festival, known as the Ultimate Country Music Fan Experience, as well as on Fandango’s digital network, which reaches 36 million unique visitors per month and includes Fandango Movieclips, the number one movie trailer and content channel on YouTube, plus Fandango channels on Hulu, Roku and Samsung’s Milk Video Service.
“Movies helped shape who I am today,” said Darius. “It’s joyous to see something meaningful on the big screen, providing important moments in your life. I remember the first time I saw ‘Purple Rain,’ I was instantly changed. I’m getting chills just thinking about it.”
Other Country greats will take part in “I Love Movies” interviews at CMA Fest as part of a larger partnership between Fandango and the CMA culminating in a special Country Music-themed “I Love Movies” programming block that will run in the fall across Fandango’s digital network, timed with “The 49th Annual CMA Awards” in November.
“Country Music and the movies are kindred spirits, as both share authentic life stories that leave meaningful, lasting effects on their audiences,” said Adam Rockmore, head of marketing at Fandango. “We’re excited to share Darius and Reba’s ‘I Love Movies’ episodes at CMA Fest, giving them a new and unique platform to connect with their fans.”
