The fifth annual Overdrive-Red Eye Radio Trucker Talent Search received more than 35 entries from talented truckers who love to sing. A panel of judges reviewed all the entries and has chosen a top 10.

Song title: “Life Without You”
Why did you pick this song? If you have ever lost someone in life, it helps to hear this song, and I love Stevie Ray Vaughan.
How long have you been singing? Since I could talk, basically.
Do you play any instruments? Guitar, drums, bass, keyboard, harmonica, you name it (primarily guitar and drums).
The Trucker Talent Search culminates with a live contest featuring three finalists. The first-place winner receives a $1,000 cash prize, plus a recording session courtesy of AxleOutPro. The contest will be emceed by Tony Justice, who will also perform during the event.
