AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - As part of its "Year of the Farmer" initiative, the Ram Truck brand has partnered with Mercury Records recording artist Easton Corbin on a multi-tiered program highlighting and underscoring the importance of farmers in America.
The program includes visits to and exclusive performances by Corbin, a former FFA member, at local FFA chapters across the country; a video web series (webisodes) documenting Corbin's FFA tour; and a sweepstakes where fans can win special ACM Awards weekends in Las Vegas next spring.
"It's clear that Easton ... cares passionately about 'Year of the Farmer,' the FFA organization and its mission," says Reid Bigland, President and CEO, Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "Through his tour of local FFA chapters, he's personally connecting with this special group of kids to help us further the notion that there's a 'farmer in all of us,' while reminding everyone that we all have a role in reducing hunger in America."
