Merle Haggard’s Connection To Trucking
April 9, 2022

In our debut episode of the Exit Ramp from PodWheels Powered By RadioNemo, we learn about the strong connection that Country Music legend Merle Haggard developed with professional drivers and the trucking industry. Jimmy Mac, the host of Dave Nemo Weekends, talks with Greg Thompson, the Executive Producer of PodWheels, about the brief performance that Merle Haggard and his band gave at the 1998 U.S. Xpress company picnic. You’ll hear Greg tell Jimmy the story behind how Merle was a guest at the picnic and why he and his band decided to play a five-song set for a group of stunned truck drivers and support staff.
