The Truckload Carriers Association announced that country recording artist Lindsay Lawler, the spokesperson for TCA’s Highway Angel program, is about to begin a concert tour of 26 truck stops across southeast and Midwest America.
Her “Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour” is designed to enhance the trucking industry’s image.
The unique tour – the first attempt of this kind to help restore the perception of professional truck drivers as “Knights of the Highway” – runs from Aug. 19 through Oct. 30, and is sponsored by TravelCenters of America/Petro Stopping Centers.
Each of the stops at the 26 TA/Petro locations will feature an hour-long acoustic performance by Lawler from the top of a flatbed truck, sponsored by Fikes Truck Line, and a live, two-hour radio remote through Renegade Radio Nashville.
To further enhance the interactive, family-friendly experience, trucking carriers and other companies are signing up to be stop sponsors, where they will greet drivers, talk about their services, and show general support for Lawler and the trucking industry.
