ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

When Grammy and CMA award winning country music star Miranda Lambert was planning a tour in 2010, she needed a truck. Lambert, who has a ranch outside of tiny Tishomingo, Oklahoma, approached the town's one and only Chevrolet dealer looking for a deal.

"She's got a ranch here,” said Ken LaFevers of Tishomingo, Chevrolet, "and she asked if we would provide a truck to tow her personal Airstream trailer."

Lambert has recorded many top hits including "Kerosene," "Famous in Small Town," "Gunpowder and Lead," and the multiple award winning "The House That Built Me." Along with her fiance and neighbor, country singer Blake Shelton, they are the most famous of Tishomingo's 3162 residents.

After the dealership agreed to let Lambert use the truck, they made some improvements to what was already a well equipped 2008 Chevrolet Silverado Z71. A distinctive vinyl wrap, with a large picture of Lambert, Tishomingo Chevrolet signage, and the official tour logo, was applied. Then new wheels, an updated exhaust system, and a grill guard were added.

"It's a really, really, nice truck," LaFevers said.

With the truck ready to go, Lambert hitched up her trailer and went on the road in March of 2010 to promote her "Revolution" Album. She used the Chevrolet to tow her trailer throughout the tour, which included stops in places as far apart as Bangor, Maine and Prescott, Arizona. When the truck was returned to Oklahoma it had over 100,000 miles on the odometer but was still in good shape. Now it also has an autograph by the singer inside on the headliner.

While LaFevers, admits it was "cool" to be a part of the singer’s tour, he said the dealership would now really like to sell the truck.

"It's gotten a lot of people in the door and it seems like we've had a million calls on it. It's a real crowd pleaser but we'd like to sell it," LaFevers said.

As a result of their desire to sell the truck, the dealership is taking some unique steps to market the vehicle. This includes featuring it as a prize in an upcoming area golf tournament. If a player gets a hole-in-one on a specific hole they will win the truck.

"Who knows what the odds are of that happening but we had to insure it just in case," LaFevers said.

LaFevers knows that there's a buyer out there for the truck, "there's a butt for every seat," he says adding that the truck is a great opportunity for the right buyer.

"This truck is a piece of Country Music history," he said.
