The Truckers Jamboree, is held July 9-11 at the Iowa 80 Truckstop, I-80 Exit 284, in Walcott, Iowa. Last year, the jamboree attracted more 44,000 attendees.
Several of the Josh Abbott Band’s songs debuted on Billboard’s Country Chart; the most recent being Hangin’ Around, which has also received airplay on Sirius XM’s The Highway. The band’s new EP Tuesday Night was released in February.
