From a songwriting session in early 2019 with Nashville-based John Allan Miller, Airgas company driver Guy Archer, based in Dayton, Ohio, was determined to get back to Music City to continue work in songwriting later that same year. Yet a back injury derailed that plan, then COVID happened in 2020. Getting back into his truck after unloading one night early this year, Archer happened to hear an advertisement for the Overdrive-Red Eye Radio Trucker Talent Search.
As many regular listeners will know, Archer went on to win that competition, and early in November, he was back in Nashville at Jay’s Place recording studio with producer-engineer Jay Vernali laying down five of his original tracks, all of which you can listen to at the head of the Music to Truck By playlist at the bottom of this post.
