New year. New album. New opportunities.
That’s what’s ahead for a man with several titles, Tony Justice who’s a trucker/singer/songwriter.
“There’s a lot of changes coming in the pipeline,” said Justice. “It’s a big step up. Some uncharted territory for me.”
His new album – Justice’s third — arrives shortly after the turn of the year, and with it this 45-year-old driver for Everhart Transportation and son of a trucker from Dandridge, Tenn. reaches a new plateau in his musical career.
“Brothers of the Highway” is in its final stages of production at the Ruckus Room in Nashville, said Justice, who recently celebrated the sale of 50,000 copies of his albums.
Justice shares writing credits on the album with Kim Williams, who penned the hit “Three Wooden Crosses.”
Also joining Justice on the new album is another former trucker who went on to musical fame and fortune, Aaron Tippin. Justice and Tippin perform a duet on “Brothers of the Highway.”
In addition to his new album, Justice said he has signed an impressive new management deal. He recently inked a contract with Erv Woolsey, who also manages country star George Strait (who, oddly enough, had a hit with “Brothers of the Highway,” which was co-written by Williams), Lee Ann Womack, Clay Walker, Branch and Dean and Shawn Lacy.
Justice said he expects the new management arrangement will lead to some radio play for “Brothers of the Highway” and much more.
Justice said that he could not do all he does without plenty of support. First and foremost, he praised all of the work his wife Misty does on his behalf. He also said his two sponsors – Blue Tiger USA and Stay Loaded Apparel – help make it possible for him to pursue his music while continuing to drive truck.
