Ram Nation Lends Aid to Flint Michigan


Ram Nation is a group of truck owners that take the time to make sure that people in need get relief.  They’ve aided in disaster relief from flooding and tornadoes and are now helping the residents of Flint.

Ram Nation teamed up with Country Songwriter and Singer Levi Hummon to promote their driving of pallets of filtered water to the residents of Flint Michigan.  Hummon also performed before heading out to help draw awareness to the Ram Nation truck drivers driving out the water.  Check out the video they made about it here:

Ram Extends Partnership With Easton Corbin

Easton Corbin Country Music - RamDealerNy Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge

Ram has been having a lot of luck with their country stars.  The recent partnership with Miranda Lambert has delivered a smash hit with her song “Roots and Wings.”  It’s clear they’ve found an audience for their trucks and it is in the form of a country audience.  It doesn’t come as any surprise that Ram is extending their partnership with country star Easton Corbin.

Easton and Ram have been collaborating since 2012.  This extension of their relationship is going to produce a whole new song titled “Let’s Ride.”  Like Lambert’s “Roots and Wings” the song is inspired by Ram trucks.  The song will be featured across a slew of media spectrums, from commercials to its own music video.

“We continue to look for unique ways to creatively show how Ram trucks are an integral part of our culture and the everyday lives of our customers,” said Oliver Francois, Chief Marketing Officer of FCA.  “It is rewarding to know that Easton, one of the hottest young artists in country music today, wrote the song inspired by his ongoing experiences behind the wheel of our Ram trucks.”

The music video of “Let’s Ride” will be available on YouTube and other digital services.

Miranda Lambert Pens New Song for Ram Trucks

Miranda Lambert - Roots and Wings - RamDealerNYC

Country music and truck culture have always gone together. It is impossible not to visualize each country singer parked out in some kind of truck with a guitar. So when it comes time to advertise, truck makers tend to aim to pick up a country singer. In the case of Ram, they’ve teamed up with Miranda Lambert for a new ad campaign.

Lambert has put together a new song for the partnership. It is titled “Roots and Wings” and will be part of a new upcoming ad series with Ram trucks.

Both the video and the song capture an outdoors feeling. The imagery used is that of country life, with sprawling forests of pine trees and singing on the porch. The Ram truck makes numerous appearances as well as being referenced in the song as part of Sunday rides with her dad. It is also obvious that the wings is a reference to the iconic Ram logo with the wings.

Miranda Lambert commented on writing the song, “I am very inspired by what the Ram brand stands for – being who you are, working hard, staying true to your roots. I wanted to write a song that would represent all of those things. ‘Roots and Wings’ is personal to me about where I come from and where I am going. The guys at Ram really made the lyrics come to life with the imagery, and I hope it speaks to people the way it does to me.”

Ram Jam Auctions Raise $181,731 for Charity!

Road to Ram Jam ImageRam’s all-star country music series, ‘Ram Jam,’ has been a resounding success.  One of the main parts of the event leading up to the concert was called “The Road to Ram Jam.”  All five of the country stars that would be performing as part of the concert were given Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn trucks with which to drive around before auctioning the trucks off with proceeds going towards charity.  The five trucks have been sold off and the final total for the donation has been tallied.  In total, they made $181.731.

The final truck sold belonged to Easton Corbin.  His Ram raised $37,101 for the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund.  The fund awards college scholarships to the children of the men and women in the Armed Forces who have lost their lives or limbs in defense of the country.

The other artists included Kellie Pickler, Brantly Gilbert, Billy Currington, and Zac Brown Band.  They were all given the Longhorn trucks, including Corbin, in early January.  Each one was then put up for auction to go towards the charity of the artist’s choice.

Breaking down the individual totals comes to Pickler raising $36,200 for the USO Warrior and Family Care program; Gilbert’s went for $34,552 and his charity was the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.  Billy Currington’s charity was for Team Rubicon and raised $34,578 and Zac Brown Band, the charity being Camp Southern Group, raised $39,300.

Ram Offers ACM Experience for Country Music Fans

Ram climbing hill

Ram fans and country music fans have always had a connection.  One just can’t help but love the other it seems.  Ram knows this, that’s why they devoted their resources into putting together a country music celebration which had each entertainer drive a Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn for an entire year before putting it up for auction with the proceeds going to charity.  The truck company decided that wasn’t enough and put up a special treat for people in attendance of the American Country Music Awards.

The event was dubbed the ‘ACM Experience’ and offered a rare experience.  Fans got into a 2013 Ram 1500 and went up a 30-degree drive up a 13 foot hill.  That’s not all; the course was filled with different challenges to drive over, such as a bed of railroad ties.

The people who took a ride also were registered for a chance to win $45,000 towards a Chrysler Group vehicle and free tickets to two weekend concerts.

Ram Honors Military Hero at ACM Awards

Next Monday is Memorial Day, a day that Ram takes very seriously, and this year Ram teamed up with one of country music’s biggest stars to pay tribute to America’s heroes.

Ram asked for friends and family to nominate a military service-member for the National Ram Military Hero Contest. The winning service-member and the person who nominated them would win a trip to Las Vegas for the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards and would get to meet country music star Craig Morgan.

The 2012 honoree was Army Pfc. Brandon Sapp of the 1st Calvary Division from Fort Wood Texas, who was killed by a homemade bomb. For his service, he was awarded the Purple Heart, the Bronze Star, and the Good Conduct Medal. His father John accepted the National Ram Military Hero award on his behalf last month as part of the ACM Awards weekend events.

Both Craig Morgan and Ram have a long history of supporting the troops. Morgan was active duty in the Army’s 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions for ten years and served an additional nine years in the Reserves. He has also performed in nine USO tours and won the 2006 USO Merit Award. In a recent interview, he praised Ram’s strong commitment to the military, saying, “I think it’s so wonderful that a company like Ram Trucks who is such a great brand and so recognizable; for them to get behind something, that to me is more important than anything, and that’s to get behind the men and women that serve in our Armed Forces.”

At Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, we want to encourage our readers to honor our military service-members all throughout the year as well as during Memorial Day weekend. You can keep up with the latest news, events, and incentives (including our Military Incentive Program) from Ram by bookmarking Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, liking Bayside on Facebook, and following Bayside on Twitter.
