Steve Sommers inherited that slot on WLW from his father, Dale Sommers, AKA the Truckin’ Bozo.

Lonnie Irving’s “Pinball Machine” kinda hits two birds with a single stone. mark In the 1980s, Dudley continued to record sporadically, and remained popular in concert. six days on the road is one of my favourite pop tunes. It is hardly a serious tune.
Sovine’s speaking style would have significant influence on the rest of country outside the trucking sub genre, while his trucking songs set the bar for emotional impact and storytelling.
… …. Trigger By the late 1970s, his success on the charts was beginning to fade, although Dudley amassed thirty-three Top 40 Country hits. Dudley was injured once again in 1960, this time in a car accident, setting back his career in music.
10:29 am, matt2 And just for fun, who could forget Cledus Maggard and ‘The White Knight’? diesel doctor For this album Buck Owens wrote and recorded a trucker-ized version of “Will There Be Sweethearts in Heaven” under the guise of “Will There Be Big Rigs in Heaven?”. A group called The Yahoos do a great cover of the Chris Knight song “Highway Junkie” as well. September 3, 2013 @ CJ Marsicano Leland martin does as well come to think about it.
I think the common experience can lend an authenticity to a trucking song, as opposed to a pick-up truck song (which are really just machismo.) But I gotta keep my spirits up, so I guess I’ll sing a little more. September 3, 2013 @ ..somebody really needs to do a slowed down murder ballad version of this.
I don’t know if there is a song in any music genre that towers over the other songs in a particular subset as “Six Days On The Road’ does.
2 certainly deserve mention, with the first one considered by many to be the album that launched Dale’s career. He came out from Iowa and fell in love with Colorado, as most folks do, moved out and wrote songs about life in the hills. 10:37 am. That album is being re-issued later this month, finally. Few of his hits have made it onto CDs and albums, creating a market for his vintage vinyl recordings.

The open road, freedom and the radio your only friend. I have heard Steve Earle talk about how truckers always relate to his songs about touring – Guitar Town and Little Rock n Roller especially – because their experiences are similar. September 3, 2013 @ Not much point in it is there? Tom Jason Aldean told him it was NOT the perfect country and western song because it hadn’t said anything at all about driving a jacked-up pickup truck through the cornfield at the end of the dirt road to the bonfire party next to the pond in the back 40 where you listen to Hank Williams, Jr, Lynard Skynard, and Nelly while you try to get in some drunk chick’s pants. Somehow they didn’t end up as cliched as the truck songs. September 4, 2013 @ Like many of country’s trucker song stars, Curless spent a lot of time in California and was signed to Capitol Records, though he was known to frequently go back to his home in Maine to recover from a grueling schedule of touring and performances. I believe Willin’ was written by Lowell George of Little Feat. September 4, 2013 @ Holding an honorary solid gold membership card to the Teamsters Union, he broke out with “Six Days On The Road” in 1963 and never looked back.
With only a few exceptions, virtually all of Red Simpson’s songs are about trucking or the highway patrol. Half ton pickup truck Born in Spencer, Wisconsin, Dudley had a short career as a semi-professional baseball player. Brothers of the highway-George Strait
I used to go backpacking in the Weminuche Wilderness all the time.
On another note, though, there are many great songs from the 60s-70s about cars. Unlike Cagle, Aaron Tippin (and this is the reason I am leaving the comment, though it has little to do with the topic) was memorable because he was so awful. The trucking song “Sam’s Place” that went on to become a #1 for Buck Owens was written by Red, and in 1975, Red landed his own big hit with “I’m A Truck.” At 79, Red is the last of the original country trucker song stars still around. etc. 12:15 pm. September 3, 2013 @ One of Jerry Reed’s signature songs is “East Bound & Down” from the Smokey & The Bandit movies where he played a trucker.

September 3, 2013 @ Jimmy Colvard played guitar on 6 Days on the Road — only about 19 years old at the time. Great article, Trig. C.W. One of my favorite songs by them is “Mama Hated Diesels”.

Dave Dudley (born David Darwin Pedruska; May 3, 1928 – December 12, 2003) was an American country music singer best known for his truck-driving country anthems of … In 1995, he recorded two duets with Junior Brown, “Semi Crazy” and “Nitro Express.” He is still recording, recently doing a duet with underground country artist Bob Wayne, and rumored to have an album called The Bard of Bakersfield in the works. Don’t forget Jerry Reed’s sequel to “Eastbound and Down” called “Texas Bound and Flyin'” from Smokey And The Bandit II. And if ever anyone doubted the sincerity of trucker music, listen to Red Simpson “Roll Truck Roll. Dale has also been known to drive trucks and his own bus upon occasion. By the end of 1963, he released his first single from the label, "Last Day in the Mines". DAC’s edit included a pickup truck not a big rig. I don’t know if I’d say Wolf Creek Pass was a gimmick. Call one four O, ring two and ask for Bob”, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjeTq2fShRc, Canuck Corb Lund’s song “Hurtin’ Albertan” is a great newer trucking song. , In the original version of the song as recorded by Dudley the lyrics include the words "...I'm taking little white pills and my eyes are open wide..." a reference to the stimulants some truckers used to keep driving (and make their delivery times) when they needed sleep.
Lately when I have played this song live I recite the line something like this: “The late, great Steve Goodman wrote this song and told Jason Aldean that it was the perfect country and western song. Burt
September 5, 2013 @ The road as a metaphor for freedom is a very American theme that still resonates, though perhaps to a lesser degree. Wolf Creek Pass, Black Bear Road…real places. I had never heard of EHS at the time, but they were great.
February 7, 2014 @ but any more there’s just none of it new. Mike2 2:57 pm. 5:12 pm. 10:51 am. Bull hauler tough-Leland Martin Thanks for the correction.
Candidate for the post of the year award right there.. Lunchbox Bob Wayne recently performed and recorded a duet with Red Simpson after re-discovering him in a Bakersfield trailer park. 6:53 pm. And Norma Jean recorded the feisty “Truck Driving Woman.”, Your email address will not be published. What about Miss Marie and the Bedford Blaze by Marty Stuart? Now the thing with truck driving songs is they have a life all on their own. March 17, 2015 @
September 4, 2013 @ The truck songs, on the other hand, are about excess and consumption. here lately its showin’ on me too. Junior’s signature song “Highway Patrol” rekindles the symbiotic relationship between trucker songs and highway patrol songs first started by Red Simpson, who he recorded two duets with in 1995. I think they chose “Rock” rather than the more accurate “Country” because it makes for a better sounding title. McCall’s popular career was pretty short, ranging from roughly 1974-1978, but his impact, especially with “Convoy” cannot be understated. Now country western music is most associated with the trucking industry and therefore, the sub-genre is mostly country music. part of the lyrics are 'daddy loved mama'
and draws pictures of trucks. But those arent country, and you won’t understand them if you don’t drive a truck for a living. Does Kathy Mattea deliver with this track — her smooth voice paired with that great country tune makes the song worth listening to on endless repeat. Dudley continued to have success into the 1970s, while continuing to record for Mercury Records. September 3, 2013 @ McCall’s “Convoy” has to be one of the WORST truck songs EVER.
3:43 pm. It was later released in the U.S., peaking at No. 56 Comments. When the moon is out and the trucks are traveling down the highways across North America, Steve is there keeping the conversation going.
September 4, 2013 @ Shastacatfish And let’s not forget, David Allen Coe, sent Steve Goodman’s, “Perfect Country and Western song”, back to him because it didn’t say anything about trucks, rain, momma, etc.,! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh66kDox4R0, Christine The painter curtly tells the trucker that the "girl wasn't real" and that he'd "better get the (censored) on his way." Gonna buy me a place back home Back in April of 2005, during my 4 year exile in Dallas, I went to Shinerfest. 2:52 pm. jericho60
8:21 am. J. Burke Holding an honorary solid gold membership card to the Teamsters Union, he broke out with “Six Days On The Road” in 1963 and never looked back. If you really want a truckin’ song that has some emotion and makes you feel something, then check out that song: Trigger The difference of course was many of these classic trucker songs were considered very well-written, with many of them delving into deep issues like death, loneliness, loss of family, etc. September 3, 2013 @
The novelty song was Reeves' fourth entry on the U.S. country chart and his only No. McCall got a late start in the trucking genre, joining the second wave of the movement in the mid-70’s. 5:50 pm, Jason September 3, 2013 @ Oh, what a long o’ haul this ones been, Sovine also had a non-trucking #1 hit in a duet with Webb Pierce in 1955 with the song “Why Baby Why.”. Jukebox He was one of the earliest artists to record for the National Recording Corporation, with "Where's There's A Will" (1959). Too bad the vast majority of people have never heard of it and never will. Ray Carlisle has more trucking songs than I care to count. I did not mean it was a gimmick in terms of location but rather by the tone of the song.
96 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has become one of many country standards about lust. 10:10 am. September 3, 2013 @ 3:09 pm. Yeah. I always liked McCall’s “Wolf Creek Pass”.
Simple, yet poetic and powerful. September 8, 2013 @ He then decided to pursue a career in country music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSWjOoXS-Pk, Howard
