Team owner-operators debut song for Jazzy

In advance of the Mid-America Trucking Show this year, owner-operators James and Jan McCarter were asked by Lee Jordan to write a song for his daughter. McCarter and the Nashville Straight-Up Sound Studio crew, producers of the Truckers Tracks series of CDs, recorded and produced the song, “Thank You, Jazzy,” with a “We Are the World”-type choral treatment in just a few weeks’ time. It debuted live at the Mid-America Trucking Show at Rockwood Products’ booth. “[Jan] sang it live there and put me into tears both times,” Jasmine Jordan says.

You can download the tune, “Thank You, Jazzy,” via the McCarters’ website, www.thekeystruckers.com; at the Run With Jazzy site, www.runwithjazzy.com; or via iTunes. All proceeds go to benefit the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund, as do $2 of every sale of both Jan McCarter’s disc and Truckers Tracks Vol. 3 (see p. 38 for more).
