Truckin Songs

I like trucker songs. Grew up with a dad who was gone all the time trucking, and mom who ran a brokerage/logistics company for lots of freight carriers.
Last time I tried to talk trucker tunes on here it didn't go so well.

I know lots of yall have to LOVE trucking songs as much as me!

What are some of your favorites?
When I was bringing back my RYO bus from KY I was LONGING for some tunes! Ended up singing a few of em to myself just to pass the time.

Dave Dudley was always one of my favorites, what a great voice!
Six Days on The Road is one of my all time favorites-

Last time Roxy was visiting family in Scotland, she was BLOWN AWAY when she heard Convoy playing in a Tesco (their version of Walmart) at midnight on a tuesday. Said it instantly made her feel like she was back here with me!

Convoy is such a classic! I wanna get the chrome "rubber duck" hood ornament for my shorty, but I'm torn between that and the naked girl ornament.

Now I'm going to have to dig out my old cassette tapes. I have a bunch of old truck tapes. I used to buy the really cheap tapes in truck stops that had old tunes on them. I ended up with some really obscure stuff.

One of my favorites is "This damn 18 wheeler won't fit down this street" by an obscure band from Ft Wayne, IN . Russ McDaniel & The Sleeper Band, I think they only recorded one album. Russ was a truck driver and wrote most of the songs, not much of a singer but if you are/were a truck driver you can relate. Here's a link to the album. https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/rmcdanielsb

My favorite CW McCall one is "Wolf Creek Pass"
