Besides Santa, what is this magical relationship truckers have with Xmas? If it’s family, it’s a tragic misplacement of values!
David Currey tries to modulate his country tune into a proper carol “A Trucker’s Christmas” with all sorts of piano noodling and singing range. But him missing kids pales next to when he vows to ‘pop the clutch and gear that sucker down.’
More country/folk with a percussive blast of Allman brothers, Maxx Mann swears sorrow for his “Trucker’s Christmas.” But his blues are balls out upbeat.
Pretty as a pop tune, country singer Johnny Dan’s sort-of country song “A Truck Driver’s Christmas” is a slow dance pout about not being home. One two three, one two three.
Of course Red Simpson jerks tears the best with his “Blue Blue Christmas (For This Truck Drivin’ Man).” Are truckers so irresponsible that they can’t keep a calendar on the dashboard? Quit whining and put the pedal to the metal!
Granpa Robert Spurgeon delivers the standard ‘Jingle Bells’ spoofery with his armchair “Trucker Christmas Song.” Trouble with the law? That ain’t yule!
Summoning his honky tonk powers, Dan Brayall altos “Big Rig Christmas Tree.” Finally he’s celebrating being on the road again. Why so sad for the baby J, you other musicians? This truckers’ creation is gonna ‘save the day’!
