Regular readers may well remember hazmat hauler and singer-songwriter Bill Weaver from this post from just up on Christmastime last year, showcasing Weaver’s comical “How the truck drivers saved the Christmas holiday” performed in-cab for you, or you may well have caught his vid as part of the summer Trucker Talent Search competition. In any case, take heed: Weaver’s got a record in the works. He launched a GoFundMe.com fund-raising campaign to help with the production costs today.
Weaver’s been at trucking for 20 years throughout the lower 48, and the native of Flippin, Ark., has a soulful approach to trucking-country music. The record of original songs, “Every mile I drive,” he’s projecting for release on Dec. 1. It will be available via online retail channels — iTunes and others — for download and on CD, he says. The funding campaign is offering gifts to donors, including access to downloads, CDs autographed and otherwise, t-shirts and more.
Can’t afford to donate? Spread the word. Weaver asks you to use the #TruckingSongsCd in all social media dispatches.
Follow this link for more information or to donate to the campaign, and you can sample music from Weaver’s ReverbNation profile below. My fave among these? It’s a wonderfully crafted rock rambler, for sure — Mr. D – O – T. Giver ‘er a listen:
