Martin has been playing guitar and singing since he was 11 years old, but is most famous among drivers for his single Stone Cold Fingers, a track from his album Simply Traditional. The song has become an anthem for many out on the road. He dedicates much of his music to the professional driver and Martin truly enjoys performing at trucking events.
"Leland Martin is a favorite of truck drivers, so what better place for him to be than at our event; Celebrating America's Truckers," says Joel Hamilton, General Manager and Event Coordinator.
In addition to Martin's music, the event will feature exhibits, an antique car and truck display, live entertainment, carnival rides, fireworks, a BBQ cookout and more.
