Attention hipsters of all ages. Give up. The regular guy above, one Dave Dudley, has commandeered all the PBR in the house, smokes when or where he wants, and has a customized windbreaker. (Or did. He passed away in 2003.). He just has that look, like he just said "I don't give a shit".
He had his first hit, "Six Days on the Road" at age 35. Yeah. 35. You've heard it a zillion times, but it's like the "Johnny B. Goode" of trucker music; good to revisit every so often to relish the pureness of it. If you haven't heard it, watch the video above. For those of you who are already Six Days saturated, there's one down there, recorded in 1980, at age 57; the truth about a life on the road, "Rolaids, Doans Pills, and Preperation H". To add to its weirdness, it's on Sun. And it has wah-wah on it.
