Zac Brown Band joins Ram Jam series

Wednesday, June 27, 2012 – Zac Brown Band will join for the "Road to the Ram Jam" series and sweepstakes.

The Road to the Ram Jam, presented by the Ram Truck brand, features five country music artists and provides fans the opportunity to win prizes including trips for two to an invitation-only 2012 Ram Jam concert event Dec. 29 in Nashville where all five artists will perform.

Exclusive video content, the opportunity to win prizes including collectible posters and vinyl records through participating country radio stations nationwide, and free music downloads are part of the sweepstakes. Fans can enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win trips for 2 to the invitation-only 2012 Ram Jam concert event at www.RamTrucks.com/RoadtoRamJam or on the Ram Trucks Facebook page at www.ramjamsweeps.com.

Kellie Pickler, Brantley Gilbert and Easton Corbin previously participated.

Zac Brown Band will offer fans a chance to win a free download of their new single The Wind from the forthcoming album "Uncaged" set for release on July 10 on Atlantic Records/Southern Ground Artists, when they enter the Road to the Ram Jam concert sweepstakes.

The last Road to the Ram Jam artist will be announced in August and all five participating will receive a lease on a 2012 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn truck. The trucks will then be auctioned off in early 2013 with all proceeds going to benefit a charity of each artist's choice.

Proceeds from Zac Brown Band's Ram truck will be donated to Camp Southern Ground, set to open in 2014. Brown donated this 500-acre piece of property, set in the farmlands of Georgia, to open the camp that will be a state-of-the-art facility whose programs will serve children ages 7-17 with both typical and special needs. The camp will have activities that will challenge, educate, and inspire children with diverse abilities and from all socioeconomic backgrounds, races, and religions. Among the many traditional camp activities that will foster youth development and create teachable moments for campers, plans are in place to align certain elements of the facility with the latest innovative therapies and technology for those children affected by neurobehavioral disorders.

"To me, there's nothing more important than helping kids and it's a great to know that with support from our friends and fans, this camp is going to make a huge difference in the lives of each and every camper," said Brown.

CD review - Welcome Home With "Welcome Home," the Zac Brown Band continues to do what it does best, which is making quality roots music. In fact, one of the album's songs is even titled "Roots." Brown may not be the most religious guy, but his latest songs focus on many truly spiritual cornerstones of life: family and friends. Both "Family Table" and "My Old Man" find Brown reflecting on his family life, with the latter also looking at 'the here and now' of being a father himself. ...
CD review - Jekyll + Hyde Fans looking for the Zac Brown Band of 2005 won't find it in "Jekyll + Hyde" - there's nothing but an aftertaste of the Georgia group's chicken-fried origins. That might be why the album's name is so appropriate. Fans have gotten to know the country-folk band, but a deviant creeps in on all 16 tracks of its fourth album. And, like the classic story, Hyde stands out as more interesting. It hits hard, too. The opener, "Beautiful Drug," has an electric-pop ...
CD review - Uncaged Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged" album opens with Jump Right In, which finds singer/bandleader Brown admonishing, "Let the music pull you in," which might just be Brown's motto. He's all about forgetting the cares of the day and giving in wholeheartedly to the magnetic attraction of good music. Although Brown writes, sings and plays well throughout, there are nevertheless few truly standout tracks or unexpected surprises on "Uncaged." With that said, ...
