Country music artist and former National FFA Organization (FFA) member Easton Corbin is helping RAM Truck Brand and the Freeland Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealership thank the Logan County FFA chapter and their friends and family for participating in a test drive event at the dealership that raised more than $2,000 for local FFA leadership programs.
This past April 26, the Ram Truck brand partnered with individual dealers and FFA chapters across the country to sponsor “The Next Crop Project” national day of test drives where Ram donated $20 to the FFA for each test drive. To be eligible for the Easton Corbin concert contest, dealers and their participating chapters had to complete 100 drives or more during their event. The four winners were then selected from this pool of events.
The invitation-only free concert took place on Thursday, Aug. 21st with over 1,000 guests expected to attend. The concert was held at the Logan County Ag Arena at 7:30 p.m.
Nearly 100 dealers across the country participated in the April 26 “The Next Crop Project” and approximately 6,400 test drives were taken, raising over $125,000 for FFA leadership programs.
Mercury Records recording artist and former FFA member Easton Corbin first partnered with Ram in 2013 as part of the brand’s “Year of the Farmer” celebration launched after its highly successful two-minute “Farmer” tribute that aired during the 2013 Super Bowl television broadcast.
Corbin met with thousands of local FFA chapter members in 12 markets for exclusive events that included private concerts and question and answer sessions.
