KNOXVILLE, Tenn., March 25, 2024 – It’s a rhyme as old as time: “Beans, beans the musical fruit, the more you eat...” Many grew up singing along to the bean song as kids, learning as they got older that beans are actually a superfood. To celebrate beans and showcase why the mighty legume deserves a better song, Bush’s® is inviting all bean-obsessed musicians, singers and general creative spirits to re-imagine the iconic bean song.

Introducing Bush’s “Musical Fruit Contest” – a nationwide call for an updated or new song that’s short, sweet and, most of all, hones in on the many bean-efits of beans! Not only are beans versatile, but they’re also a source of plant-based protein and fiber, and are good for the soil that they’re grown in.

“In our continuing efforts to elevate beans to their rightful place in the world, Bush's wants to tap into the imagination of our bean lovers to help create a song worthy of the beautiful bean," said Stephen Palacios, Senior Vice President of Marketing & Innovation at Bush’s. “We’re in search of a modern version of a memorable classic created by the biggest bean fans, and we can’t wait to hear what they cook up!”

Starting March 25 through April 18, Bush’s invites creative bean enthusiasts to submit their rendition on Instagram or TikTok tagging @BushsBeans and using hashtag #themusicalfruitcontest. Songs should celebrate beans and nod to all there is to love about the humble pantry staple.

Those who participate can win big in the process. Bush’s will select one grand prize winner who will receive a $10,000 cash prize, Bush’s Beans for life, and a trip to Nashville for an exclusive Grand Ole Opry experience, which will include their song played on a videoboard during intermission at the Opry, a hosted backstage VIP experience, an Opry and Ryman Auditorium tour, recording studio time and more. The four First Prize winners will get $5,000 for their musical efforts.
