On the Road Album cover (Tony Justice)
Very pleased to announce that Flying J/Pilot Travel Centers will be releasing the “On the Road” album by Tony Justice on December 6, 2011. Tony is truck driver doing what he loves and singing about it. The album is dedicated to Tony’s Dad, Bob Justice AKA “Big Daddy” a man that dedicated 30 years of service on the road and to those that still drive the roads that keep America moving.
“It’s about truckin’ time!! I am excited to announce the soon-to-be released album “On The Road” by Tony Justice, an over-the-road truck driver, singer/songwriter. The first Nashville produced trucking album since the Rubber Duck and Convoy days; that’s over 30 years! The largest truck stop chain in America, Pilot/Flying J, will be nationally distributing this album in November. Guaranteed to be high-steppin’, double-clutchin’, gear-jammin’, chicken-truckin’ tunes that promises to entertain both truckers and music lovers alike.There are several songs on the album worth pointing out. The first track is Peterbilt 379, a song depicting the life of a driver who is proud of the truck that gets him from A to B to fulfill his job, written by Tony during his travels while driving his Big Pete. The title track, “On The Road”, was written by Kenny Chesney, and in the words of Overdrive magazine’s editor, it “..explores the difficulty of sustaining an on-highway marriage, primarily from the wife’s point of view: “While he’s out in the fast lane, her life’s moving slow… She wonders if he’s cheated / She hopes that he’s been true / She knows he’s thought about it / ‘Cause she’s thought about it too…”- Todd Dills, Overdriveonline.com (Oct 13, 2011). And, of course, one must mention the remake of the original classic, “Six Days On The Road”, by Dave Dudley.Tony kicked off the debut of his album by performing at the 1st Annual Truck Driver Social Media Convention in Tunica, MS last month, where “The evening concluded with some of the best entertainment around as Tony Justice and his Nashville band cranked out hit after hit.” – Allen Smith, AskTheTrucker.com (Oct 17, 2011). It was Tony’s pleasure to attend and perform at this event, so he could show his support for the current events happening in the trucking industry.Thanks to the topics presented, Tony’s social media network has increased his statistics astoundingly! His songs have touched many truckers nationally, and, even globally, with his true life experiences resonating through the lyrics. He has even had Facebook friends from Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, and many others, wanting to know how they can get one of his CD’s!!”
