Zac Brown truck on auction, display in Dunwoody for charitable cause

The truck used during the Zac Brown Band’s 2018 “Down the Rabbit Hole” tour is being auctioned by Mack Trucks to raise money for a nonprofit that’s a passion of the Grammy-award winning singer.

The Mack truck, which includes the singer’s autograph on the sun visor, was on display at Perimeter Mall last week.

Mack Trucks will donate proceeds from the auction to help fund programs offered by Camp Southern Ground.

Founded by Zac Brown, Camp Southern Ground provides summer camps for children and programs to help veterans transition to civilian life. They expect to serve 600 children next summer and 224 veteran next year, according to Camp Southern Ground spokesperson Beverly Rhodes.

“It's incredible to make something on this level of quality, to execute something truly excellent, that benefits a higher purpose. This auction will directly help us serve more kids and more veterans,” Zac Brown said.

"Our goal is to provide experiences for children and veterans to recognize and magnify the unique gifts within themselves in order to positively impact others," Mike Dobbs, CEO of Camp Southern Ground said. "Our veterans have operated under the highest of callings to serve and protect the freedoms of the American people, and we are dedicated to care for them upon their return home."

Other notable features on the truck include leather-wrapped seats with the Zac Brown Band logo, and flooring in the cab that was taken from the band's studios in Nashville, Rhodes said.
