Easton Corbin Auctions Truck for Charity

You know you're a star when people give you free trucks to drive around just to promote their brand. That happened to "country" singer Easton Corbin (and a few other musicians), who were given Ram trucks. After driving the trucks for a year, the musicians are auctioning them off to benefit charities of their choice. Although I'm not familiar with Corbin's music, I do get e-mail from his charity, so I've received the following information, which looks as if it was meant to be shared as widely as possible..."we" in the quote below is Freedom Alliance:

"We're honored to be part of Ram Trucks' special promotion which works like this: Last year, Ram Trucks gave Easton Corbin a brand new Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn to drive. The truck is now being auctioned to the highest bidder - which could be you.

Proceeds from the sale will benefit Freedom Alliance's Scholarship Fund. To own Easton's truck - and honor our military heroes at the same time - you must make the winning bid at www.ebay.com/roadtoramjam. Bidding begins March 18th.
Freedom Alliance is one of five charities that have been chosen by country music artists for the Road to Ram Jam, a great event that is raising funds for the organizations. As they did for Easton, Ram Trucks gave each of the country stars a 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn for one year, which the stars would make available for a charitable auction beginning in February 2013. Please visit Road to Ram Jam to learn more.

Easton Corbin is a country music star who debuted in 2009 with not one, but two, No. 1 singles, "A Little More Country Than That" and "Roll With It", and a Top 15 hit, "I Can’t Love You Back". He became the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1. Billboard named Easton the Top New Country Artist of 2010 and named "Roll With It" the No. 6 Hot Country Song of the Year. He was ranked No. 9 on Billboard’s list of Top Country Artists-Male, listed between Blake Shelton and Tim McGraw.
