Truck drivers will soon be seeing a new music CD filled with songs that focus on today’s trucking issues.   Issues such as the DAC report, the high cost of diesel fuel and the general life of a trucker and the challenges they face.  Not since the days of Red Sovine and C. W. McCall, has there been a true-blooded music CD generated for the men and women of trucking.  Songwriters David Ayers and Barry Allen are about to change all of that.

Having swept the internet with their smash hit, “When the Big Rigs Don’t Roll“, the CD of the same title is expected to be released within the following weeks.  With John Johnson performing the vocals, David and Barry wanted to put together a new, all original CD that would honor our nation’s truckers and shed light on the work and struggles that they endure on a daily basis.  The talented songwriters,having won numerous awards, “When the Big Rigs Don’t Roll” has been played at rallies in Washington, D.C., New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Georgia, Florida and all across the USA and has been featured on CNN, Fox News, Cox News papers and internationally and is still broadcast through out the trucking industry.   Top Nashville music executives have referred to the song as an “Anthem comparable to the late, great hit “CONVOY” by C. W. McCall.”

One of the songs on the CD will be, “Say a Prayer for Jason“, a song dedicated to slain truck driver, Jason Rivenburg and in support of Jason’s Law, bill H. R. 2156.  Listeners of the Truth About Trucking “LIVE” talk radio show had the opportunity to hear, for the first time anywhere, this moving musical melody, paying tribute to one of trucking’s fallen.  The show aired live on Wednesday, July 7th, 2010 and Truth About Trucking “LIVE” was given exclusive permission by Allen & Ayers Productions to share a few of the songs on the soon to be released trucking CD.  “Say a Prayer for Jason” and “The Trucking Brand” were two of the songs broadcast live for the first time and can only be heard on Truth About Trucking “LIVE.”

The show, “The Truck Driver Shortage Fabrication“, also provided an update on Jason’s Law as explained to Truth About Trucking, LLC by Mr. Todd Kohr, a staff member on the Highway and Transit Sub Committee:  A perfect timing for “Say a Prayer for Jason” to be heard.  This broadcast focused on how current CDL training procedures, CSA 2010 and cross border trucking all relate and help to create the so-called truck driver shortage.  As one of our most listened to shows to date, listeners were able to hear for the first time, “Say a Prayer for Jason” and were advised about the news of the upcoming CD.

Since the 1970’s, truckers have not had a music CD produced and dedicated solely for them . . . I would say that it’s about time.  We’ll keep you posted on the release date and remember . . . you heard it here first!

Keep on Truckin’
