Audio: Starting GATS off right — a little front-porch singalong with Tony Justice, Bill Weaver

user-gravatar Headshot

The Great American Trucking is under way today, and I can’t remember a better beginning to it for me than this treat, served up to several of us, including my friends the Parkers and an untold number of hangers-on, those who just so happened to walk outside the Omni hotel here in Dallas to catch the spectacle you’ll hear in this podcast, trucker/singer-songwriters Tony Justice and Bill Weaver running through originals and several crowd-pleasers in an impromptu, unplugged front-porch sound session.

Stay tuned for more from the show, of course, as more formal events get under way. Music-wise, we’ll be live-streaming a variety of performances on Overdrive‘s Facebook page, if all goes well — Australian Jayne Denham (you’ll recall I wrote about her here), Weaver and Paul Marhoefer and, of course, this year’s Trucker Talent Search finalists Will Perry, Jason Lee Wilson and Keith Snyder.
