Truck drivers showcase their singing ability for the Overdrive-Red Eye Radio Trucker Talent Search

Overdrive and Red Eye Radio has again sponsored its Trucker Talent Search to find a trucker with the pipes to win a chance at stardom. Truck drivers were invited to submit entries earlier this year with hundreds recording entries for the contest. Three finalists will be chosen in June 2021 and asked to record a new song, which will be part of the virtual finals for the contest. Overdrive will air their final competition this summer in an evening streaming event, which will conclude with naming the winner.

The grand prize winner will win a full day’s recording session at Jay’s Place Recording on Nashville, Tennessee’s historic Music Row, complete with backing provided by professional studio musicians, as well as song mixing and production. One or more recordings from Jay’s Place, as well as a more detailed personal profile, will be published on

This contest is presented with partner Red Eye Radio, which will air interviews with the three finalists prior to the awards event. Red Eye’s Eric Harley will emcee the finals event.
