Truckin' with Jim & Jesse
I don't know what causes the attraction to truck drivin' songs, but I sure love 'em. Perhaps it's got something to do with the perception of freedom. Life on the open road, the independance. All the same reasons I listen to hobo songs, I suppose.
Jim & Jesse McReynolds are best known for their good down-home bluegrass, but for a few years they were signed with a major label and pushed to include more of the Nashville sound in their recordings. Among other things, they recorded a few tunes of the open road that have become classics.
