Search opens for trucker singing contest


The video submission period for the Overdrive-Red Eye Radio’s Trucker Talent Search is open through May 1.

Truckers who love to sing should record a video clip of themselves singing â€” even a simple smartphone recording is acceptable. Judges request minimal audio enhancement and no pitch correction software be used.

Three finalists in the contest will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas in August for a sing-off style competition to decide the winner.

A panel of music and industry professionals will watch all the videos and select the three finalists, who will attend GATS and will compete live for first prize, a $1,000 cash and a recording session provided by AxleOutPro. The event’s emcee and special musical guest will be trucker and singer-songwriter Tony Justice. Visit for more information and to enter.
