"Eastbound and down, loaded up and truckin' Oh, we gonna do what they say can't be done", lyrics from the song "East Bound and Down" written by Jerry Reed and Dick Feller, and recorded by Reed for the soundtrack for the film Smokey and the Bandit.

CB Radio, trucks, and great country music, the life of a long-distance trucker is a tough one. Days away from family, traveling a long lonely road, driving the length and breadth of the country to deliver load after load. You might ask what does little ole' me know about trucking...you might be surprised.

Truck Driving Country Music

When I was a little girl during my school holidays, my dad would sometimes take me to work with him and yes, you've guessed it, he was a long-distance lorry driver or truck driver depending on what side of the world you come from. As you can imagine, for me it was an exciting adventure and to be with my dad, made it extra special.
