Johnson’s latest work is a 25-song double album entitled The Guitar Song, which went gold and is up for Album of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards. The album also received two Grammy nominations – Country Album of the Year and Best Male Country Vocal performance for “Macon.”

The 2011 Great American Trucking Show will have more than 500 exhibitors, the Custom Rigs’ Pride & Polish National Championship, TruckSmart educational sessions and a Driver Recruitment Pavilion. Overdrive‘s Partners in Business program will present a free two-hour seminar Aug. 26.

“For the ninth year in a row, the Mobil Delvac team would like to thank all the truck drivers for their hard work and dedication that keeps all industries moving, year after year,” said Marci Crigger, commercial vehicle lubricants marketing adviser, ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties Co.

GATS also will host the Commercial Vehicle Outlook Conference, produced in conjunction with Randall-Reilly and the Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association, prior to the show.
