The Southern Rock Zac Brown Band and the Ram Truck Brand have announced a partnership. In case you're not familiar with the Zac Brown Band, they won a Grammy for "Best New Artist and "Top Vocal Group" from the Academy of Country Music and "Breakthrough Video of the Year" from Country Music Television and USA Weekend.
This partnership helps to honor U.S. soldiers as well as promote the band's USO tour and their latest single.
Starting this May, Zac Brown Band and the Ram Truck Brand kick off "Letters for Lyrics," a national campaign with a goal of sending 1 million letters to U.S. soldiers stationed across the world. Participants who write a letter to a U.S. soldier will receive a special compilation CD titled, "Breaking Southern Ground," while supplies last. This exclusive CD features three all-new songs from Zac Brown Band, as well as music from artists signed to Zac Brown's label, Southern Ground records, Sonia Leigh, Nic Cowan and Levi Lowrey.
Soldier's Angels, a nonprofit organization, will deliver the letters on behalf of Zac Brown Band and the Ram Truck Brand. Soldier's Angels is a volunteer-led organization with over 225,000 members providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, along with veterans and their families.
Want to be a part of Letters for Lyrics? It's super easy. All you have to do is write a letter to a U.S. soldier serving overseas and bring it to your local Ram dealer. Hand it off, and you'll get the CD (while supplies last). The program starts May 10th and you can read how it works, as well as view a running total of letters written, by visiting www.ramtrucks.com.
