Three talented truckers will compete on stage at the Great American Trucking Show in Overdrive-Red Eye Radio’s Trucker Talent Search.

The truckers – Will Perry, Keith Snyder and Jason Lee Wilson – will sing live at the GATS Discovery Pavilion at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26. The trio will be competing for first place, which includes a cash prize and a studio recording session provided by AxleOutPro.

Each of the three competitors’ video submissions into the Trucker Talent Search competition can be seen below. They were selected from a group of 36 nominees after a round of audience online voting in May and June.

Trucker and singer-songwriter Tony Justice will emcee and perform at the event. Justice, who released his new album Brothers of the Highway earlier this year, will also open for John Michael Montgomery at a free concert the same night. The Everhart Transportation driver out of Tennessee has been an over-the-road truck driver since 2000.

GATS will be held at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas on Aug. 25-27. Truckers can register for free online before the show begins.

Here are the three Trucker Talent Search finalists’ entries:

Will Perry, 46, of Farmington, Minnesota

Keith Snyder, 59, of Isanti, Minnesota

Jason Lee Wilson, 37, of Maryville, Tennessee
