Zynga is teaming up with Garth Brooks and Amazon to promote Words with Friends 2.
Garth Brooks is an avid Words with Friends player, often tweeting or writing about the game. Now he’ll be teaming up with Zynga and Amazon Prime to promote Words With Friends 2.
Garth Brooks will promote Words with Friends through original broadcasts and specialized in-game activities. Amazon Prime members can also unlock a new Garth Brooks-themed tile style in the game ‘soon.’
Amazon Prime members get free mobile game content, including mystery boxes and exclusive tile styles. Players who want to participate in the event can click the banner in-game to sign in with their Amazon accounts to claim rewards.
Garth Brooks helped Words with Friends celebrate its 10th anniversary last year.
Brooks designed a custom tile style and hosted several giveaways. The country singer also took part in a fireside chat at Zynga’s headquarters. “I believe games like Words with Friends have the potential to connect people all over the world,” Brooks says. “I hope this initiative will help more people foster important relationships in their lives.”
Words with Friends 2 is now available on iOS and Android. Brooks has participated in several promotions with Zynga to promote the game in the past. Last year in November, Brooks designed a vinyl tile style for the game. That promotion also included a chance to win a 7-disc vinyl box set of Brooks’ albums.
Brooks says he likes to use Words With Friends as a way to connect with his fans on tour. “Getting to connect with my fans on tour is a truly humbling experience,” he says. “Music, art, games – they bring people together for a great shared experience.”
Last year, Garth Brooks won Entertainer of the Year at the CMA Awards for the seventh time. He is the only artist to receive seven Diamond awards for seven albums, with each surpassing 10 million sales.
