Overdrive, available for preorder here, has been in the works for a while, says Tippin. “>I’ve had my heart set on doing this album for a long time. Now, with the current economic state, I’m reminded of the unsung heroes of the road, that legion of devoted Americans, some 4 million strong, who make their living in the trucking industry and hammer down, day after day. And I wanted to make this record for them.”

emEast Bound and Down Truck Drivin’ Man Drivin’ My Life Away Six Days On The Road Chicken Truck The Ballad Of Danger Dave and Double Trouble Prisoner of The Highway Girl On The Billboard Long White Line Movin’ On White Knight Roll On Drivin’ Fool Drill Here, Drill Now (Bonus Track)
