April 17, 2013 – The Ram Truck brand is celebrating the end of its successful “Road to the Ram® Jam” all-star country music series which raised a total of $181,731 for charities with the auction of each participating artist’s Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn truck. The series concluded with Easton Corbin’s truck raising $37,101 for the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund, which honors Americans in our Armed Forces who have sacrificed life or limb defending our country by awarding college scholarships to their children.
As a part of the Road to the Ram Jam series, five participating country music artists – Kellie Pickler, Brantley Gilbert, Billy Currington, Zac Brown Band, and Easton Corbin – received a one-year lease on a 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn truck. The trucks were auctioned off, one at a time, beginning in late January with all proceeds benefiting a charity of each artist’s choice. Fans had two weeks to bid on each artist’s truck.

So here’s a recap of what our week looked like:
On Monday, Kix Brooks, Blake Shelton, Randy Houser, Lonestar and Dustin Lynch performed for approximately 3,000 fans.

Kip Moore has been announced as the special guest on Toby Keith’s upcoming Hammer Down Tour, which is set to kick off June 8th in Ozark, Arkansas. “I am excited to go out with Toby, because I have heard so many stories about what the tours are like. I know that he has a big, big rowdy crowd, and I know he has a different kind of fan base than I probably do, which is why it’s going to be so fun to get in front of that fan base,” says Kip. “The guy has been at the top of his game for no telling how many years. I mean 10-15-20 years, so I know it’s definitely something I can learn a lot from, and I think it will better my career going out with him.”
Kip, who is currently on the road with Brantley Gilbert on the Hell on Wheels Tour, is scaling the country charts with his latest single, “Hey Pretty Girl,” the follow-up to back-to-back number-one singles – “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” and “Beer Money.”
