Dictionary.com will go country this week. The site has teamed up with the Grand Ole Opry to showcase words that country music made famous, like “dobro” and “bluegrass.”
The trivia section of Dictionary.com will also feature words used in country songs performed by artists who belong to the Opry, like Trace Adkins and Carrie Underwood. It will also feature trivia with Mary Chapin Carpenter, Faith Hill, Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town.
The country music-themed content on Dictionary.com’s 75 million mobile apps and homepage will also link to opry.com, which throughout the partnership will feature audio and video playlists celebrating various Dictionary.com featured words as well as an online sweeps offering an Opry/Dictionary.com CD library and an Opry visit for two as prizes.
“Country music and the Grand Ole Opry have a unique place in America’s history,” said Rebekah Otto, Dictionary.com’s head of content. “We’re excited to share with the world some of the ways in which the genre has influenced not only what the world sings but also its effect on our spoken word.”
