What are the top ten trucking songs of all-time?

| June 20, 2011

Planning for Overdrive‘s 50th anniversary this year, we want to hear from you with recommendations for a top-ten list of the best trucking songs of all time. Lest I unduly influence the process, I will refrain here from mentioning my own top-ten, but let’s say potential contenders could range from classics by Red Sovine to “Eastbound and Down” to the more recent, such as Pure Grain’s “Trucking Song” or many a tune penned by owner-operator-crooners running the highways today.

Post your top ten (or two, or five, or seven) in the comments here to get us started. From your recommendations, we’ll cobble together a final list for publication with our special anniversary coverage this fall.
