TEN FOUR GOOD BUDDY!!! This week we're taking a look at Trucker Songs? What are some classics? Is it a viable music genre? What do truckers and boat captains have in common? Find out on this weeks truck across the landscape of sound. "Truck-driving country is a subgenre of country and western music. It is characterised by lyrical content about trucks (i.e. commercial vehicles, not pick-up trucks), truck drivers or truckers, and the trucking industry experience. This would include, for example, references to truck stops, CB (Citizens Band) radio, geography, drugs, teamsters, roads, weather, fuel, law enforcement, loads, traffic, ICC (Interstate Commerce Commission), contraband, DOT (Department of Transportation), accidents, etc. In truck-driving country, references to “truck” include the following truck types: 10 wheeler, straight truck, 18 wheeler, tractor (bobtail), semi, tractor-trailer, semi tractor trailer, big rig, and some others. It is often confused with road music (e.g. Willie Nelson "On the Road Again", Roger Miller "King of the Road"), pick-up truck music (e.g. Toby Keith "Big Old Truck"), and/or truck driving music. The last category would be the preferred choice of most truck drivers for eclectic listening while driving/operating all types, makes, and styles of trucks." - Wikipedia
