Get Paid $10,000 by Jim Beam as Kid Rock’s Personal Bartender (Contest)

The one-man party Kid Rock is kicking off his 2013 summer tour. Jim Beam is giving one lucky fan the chance to kick it off with the Kid with a chance of a lifetime.

As you know, rock star jobs are hard to come by, especially in a less than stellar economy where the young work force is facing an  unemployment rate of 16.2 – nearly double the rate for older generations. Fortunately, the grandfather of Bourbon is opening the door for fans to score the job of a lifetime – touring the country with Kid Rock as his personal bartender while being generously compensated along the way.

Beginning today, fans – with or without bartending experience – can enter Jim Beam’s *Mix for Kid Rock* Contest to compete for the chance to be the rock star’s personal bartender during his “Best Night Ever” tour.

One lucky fan will have the opportunity to pack their bags and hit the road with Kid Rock for three tour stops this summer, experience a one-on-one bartender training from Beam’s Master Mixologist and earn a $10,000 salary package.
