Australian country-rock singer-songwriter and truck show regular Jayne Denham headlines this year’s concert at the Mid-America Trucking Show next month. She’s joined by Tennessee country singer Larry Fleet, whose debut album was released in November.

The concert, sponsored by MobilDelvac, is Friday, March 27, at 7 p.m. in Fourth Street Live, an entertainment/retail venue in downtown Louisville. The concert is free and open to folks who show their MATS badges. There will be free shuttles between the Expo Center and Fourth Street Live.

MATS is March 26-28 at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville.

Denham is familiar to folks who attend truck shows. She has appeared often at both MATS and the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas. It was at GATS last August that Denham, who grew up in a family of Australian drivers, debuted her song, “Black Coffee & White Lines.” That tune would become a music video shot in Alaska with several stars from the reality TV show Ice Road Truckers.

A former construction worker, Chattanooga-based Fleet has appeared with Jake Owen and Willie Nelson. He also was a contestant on the first season of USA Network’s Real Country performance contest show. He wrote five of the eight tracks on his debut album Workin Hard.

Trucker and singer-songwriter Tony Justice performs at the concert’s after-party.

Registration for MATS is free until Tuesday, Feb. 25 and can be done here.
