Bacon Cheese Wrapped Franks - #SummerofMusicSweeps #BarSCMTBlogger

Throw one of the greatest block party of the year and enjoy these Bacon Cheese Wrapped Franks made with Bar-S franks.

Living in New York City, there are a few things you look forward to during the summer, one of them is the amazing block parties that the entire block threw. It's the one time that you got to meet all your neighbors that you don't generally see on a day to day basis. Everyone comes together as a community and the food, the music and drinks are amazing. It's something that doesn't happen here in Colorado and is just one of the things I miss about New York. How would you like to be able to throw an amazing block party that will rock the socks off the neighborhood, and have them talking for many years to come? Bar-S is partnering with CMT to put on a big block party for this year’s CMT Music Awards as well as a sweepstakes. Join Bar-S and CMT for a summer of music and a chance to win a trip to the 2018 CMT Music Awards, a private concert and backyard BBQ experience with one of CMT's hottest Emerging Artists, or one of thousands of other great prizes!

I grew up listening to country music with my dad. Together we would sit and listen to Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers and all the other greats on a Sunday afternoon. Country music is still one of my favorite genre of music and it's not difficult to understand why. The lyrics are words I understand, unlike the music my children listen to these days, and looking back, I can now relate to most of the songs. This summer Bar-S and CMT are teaming up all summer long to bring you great food and great music you can't find anywhere else! You can check out the latest exclusive music videos by some of CMT's hottest emerging country music stars, and make sure to sign up for the CMT Summer of Music Sweepstakes! However, I want to share with you these amazing bacon, cheese wrapped franks made with Bar-S franks that you can make for your awesome block party.
