Described by Overdrive Magazine as making a name for himself with his authentic, trucking lifestyle-driven country albums, East Tennessee-based second generation trucker Tony Justice will host and perform at Overdrive-Red Eye Radio’s Trucker Talent Search during the highly-anticipated 2016 Great American Trucking Show on Friday, August 26 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX. The talent search will feature three finalists performing at the Great American Trucking Show Theater for the opportunity to win a cash prize, as well as a studio recording session provided by AxleOutPro.
During the convention, the King of the Road will also host an album launch party for his latest album, Brothers of the Highway, in the ballroom of the convention center over the course of the weekend. Fans will be able to purchase the 13-track album featuring country legend and former trucker, Aaron Tippin, on the title track, “Brothers of the Highway.” Justice describes the collaboration as instilling truckers with a “sense of unity and brotherhood and togetherness.” The music video for the track was captured by well-known trucker, videographer, and producer Chris Fiffie of Big Rig Videos.
With many miles in his rearview, Justice’s trucker-inspired music has made him a prominent figure among drivers across the nation. This notoriety has led to a variety of full-throttle performances at events such as the Mid-America Trucking Show and the 2015 Great American Trucking Show, where he opened for country music mainstay, John Anderson.
