John Schneider releases ode to truck drivers

New album available April 2nd

John Schneider has released the first single and title track from his upcoming April 2nd album Truck On via BFD/Audium Nashville and Maven Entertainment. “Truck On” is a salute to truck drivers and their families who have kept the country going during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

A portion of sales from the track will benefit St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that helps over-the-road/regional semi-truck drivers and their families who are out of work due to a recent illness or injury. Assistance may be in the form of direct payment to providers for household living expenses such as, rent/mortgage, utilities, vehicle payments, and insurance. The SCF also provides health and wellness programs such as free vaccines and smoking cessation.

The “Truck On” video is has premiered and features scenes from Schneider’s most recent acting venture Stand On It, an action-comedy movie made in tribute to the 1977 classic, Smokey and The Bandit. The film was produced through his company John Schneider Studio and was written and directed by Schneider to have the signature tongue-in-cheek charm from both Smokey and The Bandit and Dukes of Hazzard. The video even features a car chase reminiscent of his countless races through the infamous Hazzard County during his Bo Duke days.

The entire Truck On album is an ode to highway heroes, and is inspired by the southern rock songs Schneider grew up on.
