Overdrive-Red Eye Radio’s Trucker Talent Search is back for its eighth year, featuring a grand prize of a professional studio recording session. Submissions are open now through March 28.

Truckers who love to sing should record a video clip of themselves performing a song — even a simple smartphone recording is acceptable — at home or in their truck cab. Live recordings from a bar or karaoke performance are often of poor quality and may be disqualified. Minimal audio enhancement and no pitch correction software should be used.

A panel of music and industry professionals will select three finalists, who will record videos of a second song to be used in a virtual finals performance. The grand prize is a one-day studio recording session on Nashville’s Music Row, provided by Overdrive.
