Known among truckers for his “Truckin’ Sessions” series of records — the first released in 1998 and the second in 2009 — country singer-songwriter Dale Watson has been active the last year or two with another “Truckin’ Sessions” volume (2014) and the new “Call Me Insane” album as well. (Listeners can stream the third trucking-tunes volume below). The Wall Street Journal recently sat down with the artist for a talk about his music, which you can read here.

The WSJ also shared Watson’s top five favorite trucking songs. Readers will be interested to note that Watson agrees with them on the No. 1, at least. The list was led by two Dave Dudley tunes (“Six Days on the Road” and “Truck Drivin’ Son of a Gun”) and finished by Del Reeves’ “Girl on the Billboard,” Dick Durless’ “A Tombstone Every Mile,” and Red Simpson’s “Roll, Truck, Roll.” Hear those via this link.
