Ferrises of Woolwich win country music dream trip


Carl and Veda Ferris from Woolwich are going on an unforgettable trip, thanks to the Maine Lottery. Carl entered a non-winning Big Country Cash ticket in the “I’m with the Band” promotion, and his name was drawn as the first of three winners.

“I was in my car and I looked at an email that came to my phone,” Carl explained. “I called my wife where she works and asked her, ‘What are you doing on September 23?’ She said, ‘Are you asking for a date?’ I said, ‘There will be someone else with us.’ Of course, she wanted to know who.

Carl told her it would be country music star Lee Brice and, at first, she didn’t believe him. She is an unconditional fan of Lee Brice. Carl went to Veda’s office to show her the email confirming the victory.

The Maine Lottery is sending the couple to Nashville where they’ll hit the road in a luxury tour bus and join Brice and his band on the road as they travel to perform in Louisiana and Texas before returning to Nashville for having fun in Music City. The prize includes round-trip airfare, all of their meals and accommodations for five days and four nights, backstage passes, $500 in spending money and a chance to meet Brice.

There are two more “I’m with The Band” designs this year. The next registration deadline is July 30.
