MINNEAPOLIS, July 16 // PRNewswire // -- Country Inns & Suites By Carlson(SM), Inc. has announced a new opportunity for travelers that will serve two needs. The hotel chain has teamed with Minneapolis-based "Feed Them with Music" to make available two custom CD collections specifically designed to enhance the road trip experience.
