There are a number of things the Ram Truck Brand is passionate about but at the top of that list, without question, are the many men and women serving in the armed forces. The Ram Truck brand appreciates the dedication and commitment these soldiers give to our great country each and every day. The brand, together with Zac Brown Band, created “Letters for Lyrics,” a letter-writing initiative designed to show appreciation to U.S. soldiers. Now, the Ram Truck brand wants to show its appreciation to one lucky letter writer and three of their guests by treating them to a VIP concert experience with Zac Brown Band in the “Letters for Lyrics” sweepstakes.
The sweepstakes begins today and runs through March 23. To submit a letter and enter the contest, visit one of the following sites:

One letter writer will be randomly selected to take three guests to see Zac Brown Band play on Saturday, April 16, in Arlington, Texas.
“’Letters for Lyrics’ is one of the Ram Truck brand’s most important initiatives because it directly supports the U.S. soldiers who serve our great country,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO, Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “We hope that the ‘Letters for Lyrics’ sweepstakes helps to increase awareness about this initiative and generate letters to the men and women who fight for our freedom. Anyone who has had the chance to see the Zac Brown Band play live knows that the experience is worth writing as many letters as possible in an effort to win this grand prize.”
“We’re deeply moved by the outpour of support our fans have shown for the brave troops defending our country abroad and we’re proud to be a part of the ‘Letters for Lyrics’ campaign” said Zac Brown. “We’re raising the incentive to get even more letters written in 2011. We’re offering one lucky letter-writer the chance to enjoy a great concert experience with us in Arlington, Texas on April 16. So get to writing!”
