Overdrive-Red Eye Radio’s Trucker Talent Search is looking for truckers who love to sing. Submissions will be accepted through May 10. Applicants should record a video clip of themselves singing. Even a simple smartphone recording is acceptable. Judges request minimal audio enhancement and no pitch correction software be used.
Online voting to narrow the field to a group of finalists will be May 15 through June 15. Finalists will attend The Great American Trucking Show in Dallas in August and will compete live for first place. Visit TruckerTalentSearch.com for more details and to enter.
Last year’s winner, owner-operator Keith Sampson of Rhome, Texas, was chosen by a panel of four judges including country singer and radio host Lindsay Lawler and Edgar Hansen of the Discovery Channel show “Deadliest Catch.” Recording artist and professional driver Tony Justice served as emcee, performed after the three finalists and presented Sampson with his award.
