Ask The Trucker

Raising the Standards of the Trucking Industry


The Trucking Brand : Truck Drivers, Can you Relate to This?


 Truckers have a lot of time to themselves. Many of us write songs while we’re on the road.  Trucking life is a rough one, the music and thoughts we keep are what keeps us going. 

Nobody really  understands the sacrifices and lifestlye that the American Trucker endures….except the truck drivers themselves.

Trucking is a “brand” if you will. We all can relate to one another in some way, shape or form.  We may have different opinions on many things in life, but our one common bond is our trucking bloodline.

 Having a little fun, here’s a song I wrote about no one…. and yet everyone.  You’ll know what I mean after you listen to it.

I think you’re going to enjoy it……it’s dedicated to all of you  truck drivers out there…

including all the truckers  striking , demonstrating the high price of fuel

    Thanks for the song the trucking brand. It is entertaining and alittle funny at the end with the troopers question? Thanks for the song. Music does seem to go hand in hand in the trucking business. It sure has in my career!
