The fifth annual Overdrive-Red Eye Radio’s Trucker Talent Search is still accepting entries from truckers who love to sing. The singing contest culminates with a live contest featuring three finalists, held at The Great American Trucking Show in Dallas in August. The first-place winner receives a $1,000 cash prize, plus a recording session courtesy AxleOutPro.

One trucker, Thomas J. Shannon, recorded and submitted a video of a “How Great Thou Art.”

“When you drive as much as I have you see things most people don’t see,” Shannon says. “I just wanted to let him know I know it’s all him and but by the grace of God there go I. I’ve seen good and bad. I was at a truck stop just before Christmas and a family broke down. He was a driver, was going to see his daughter for the first time in his car. A lot of us got enough money to fix his car, get them a room and so he could see his daughter. That’s what is out here.”

To find out more about the contest and to submit your own entry, visit TruckerTalentSearch.com. Deadline to enter is May 1.
