Truck Driver's Vice
It's snowing like a muther here in Chicago.
Got kind of theme running this week.
I've discussed my love of trucking music in past blogs. Even went so far as to promise semi-regular truckin' songs. That was awhile ago, but since I seem to be a bit more regular these days (no jokes please), I believe I might be able to keep that promise. At least bi-weekly. Really.
I'm exhausted from trudging around the snow tonite, so my rant about the brilliance of truckin' music's gonna have to wait for the next rig rockin' post. I'll start you off with a rather obscure little album I was lucky enough to find whilst trolling the web a few months ago. The album's titled Big Bertha the Truck Driving Queen, and the feller singin' goes by the handle Bud Brewer. Couldn't find much info on the net, but the songs were written by Gary Stewart. Hmmm....
Anyhow, the usual suspects (Dave Dudley, Red Simpson, Del Reeves, etc.)will pop up in future posts, but for now enjoy these scratchy nuggets of white line fever. I'll do better tomorrow.
