““The trucker is the last true rebel, the cowboy, the independent that goes through hell and drives through it,” Early says. “Many times truckers have helped me out — even saved my life.” With his trucking album, Early hopes to open the radio waves to more trucking music. “Right now, trucking music is played on primarily trucking radio stations,” Early says. A follow-up song for “Take That Gas and Shove It” is slated to be released in October, and Early hopes it too will impact truckers. “I need the truckers to support me,” he says. “I want to kick country music back into gear.”
The Highway My Way album is available for $10 and the single, “Take That Gas and Shove It,” for $4. Both can be purchased at amazon.com, iTunes.com and other online retailers.
“I’m here to stay till I croak,” Early says. “I’m not giving up till I get ahead, and it’s gonna be a trucking hit that does it.”
