Record company looking for singing truckers
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — If you like to sing while you’re behind the wheel on those long trips the AmeriSearch Music Group Inc. (AMG) is looking for you.
AMG is looking for new talent in the trucking industry to turn into recording stars. AMG will be conducting talent searches and auditioning truckers for possible inclusion on a 10-song compilation that will be released twice a year on an ongoing basis. Projected distribution is at least 360,000 CDs/cassettes yearly.
The first professional release by AMG is from Kenny Robbins, an award-winning and two-million-mile trucker. His Greatest Hits Album Vol. 1 will be released by the end of this year. Robbins has been singing, writing and entertaining truckers at large truck stops and shows across the U.S. for years.
AMG is trying to get trucking industry advertisers to participate in its initiative, saying it’s a way for the trucking industry to “give back” to the people who help make the industry successful.
Truckers can visit www.gearjammerrecords.com for details about how to enter the AMG talent searches. The first Talent Search audition will be held at the 2003 Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky., next March.
Hopeful artists can sign up at the MATS show, or enter by Feb. 15, 2003. The deadline for freight transport or related product companies to sign on is Jan. 15, 2003.
