In September 2009, McKaig Chevrolet Buick was very proud to join forces with Phil Robertson and become The Official Truck Sponser of Duck Commander. For those of you that do not know who Phil Robertson is, Duck Commander builds and sells duck calls, duck hunting gear and apparel. Duck Commander films, produces, and distributes DVD's for sale all around the world. Phil is also the star of "Benelli Presents: Duck Commander" on The Outdoor Channel. Millions of viewers watch Phil's show every week and purchase Duck Commander DVD's each year. In 2010, Duck Commander won 5 of 7 Golden Moose Awards at the annual Outdoor Channel Awards Show. This was quite the accomplishment!
Upon teaming up with Phil Robertson, McKaig customized a Summit White Silverado and transformed it into the McKaig Chevrolet Duck Commander Edition Silverado to be driven by Phil Robertson. This truck can be seen on Phil's show and in the DVD, Duck Commander 14: Weather the Storm. Phil also speaks around the United States to thousands of people each year. He drives his McKaig Chevrolet Silverado to speaking engagements and appearances that are closer to his West Monroe home in Louisiana.
Phil's son Willie Robertson is one of the Duckmen in the DVD's and is also one of the stars of "Benelli Presents: Duck Commander" on The Outdoor Channel. To showcase his love of deer hunting, Willie created "Buck Commander" along with Major League Baseball Players: Chipper Jones, Adam Laroche, Matt Duff, Ryan Langerhans, and Tom Martin. Buck Commander also produces and sells DVDs around the world and can be seen on The Outdoor Channel on the show "Buck Commander, Protected by UnderArmour". Like Duck Commander, millions of viewers tune into The Outdoor Channel to see what Willie and the Boys are doing each week on the latest episode of Buck Commander.
In the fall of 2010, McKaig became The Official Truck Sponsor of Willie Robertson, The Buck Commander and built a Victory Red McKaig Chevrolet Buck Commander Edition Silverado. This Silverado will be seen on the newest episodes of "Buck Commander, Protected by UnderArmour" on The Outdoor Channel in the Summer of 2011 and on the Buck Commander 4 DVD to be released in 2011. Like his father, Willie travels around the United States speaking and making appearances at shows, concerts, and other events. Our McKaig Chevrolet Silverado takes Willie to these destinations closer to his home in West Monroe, La.
McKaig is very fortunate to be The Official Truck Sponsor for Phil and Willie Robertson. We are also happy to have the exclusive rights to customize and sell the McKaig Chevrolet Duck or Buck Commander Edition Silverado. Some of you have met Phil and Willie during one of their visits here to Gladewater. Be sure to keep a lookout for upcoming events hosted by McKaig with Phil and Willie as special guests. The "McKaig Outdoors Staff" would love to share our love of Silverado Trucks and the outdoors with you!
