The auction is just the beginning of a relationship between Lambert and Ram that will continue to evolve in 2015.

“I have lived my entire life surrounded by trucks even to this day. I have also written songs that mention trucks, so I am so happy to be partnering with Ram. And I’m thankful for their generosity in allowing me to auction off a Ram Laramie Longhorn for MuttNation Foundation. It’s a cause so close to my heart! I’m looking forward to more exciting news with Ram Trucks in 2015,” said Lambert.
Ram Trucks is the fastest growing truck brand in America recording 54 consecutive months of year-over-year sales gains as of October 2014.
