It's no secret that I grew up listening to a lot of country/rock fusion in the 1970's. My mother was a big fan.
Eddie Rabbitt was one of the leaders in that genre. This was one of his biggest crossover hits, hitting #1 on the Country charts and #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1980. But this ode to long-haul truckers wasn't just a hit in the moment, though - it remains one of the most recognizable songs of the era.
