Country recording artist and Truckload Carriers Association’s Highway Angel program spokesperson Lindsay Lawler announced today that this year’s Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour finale show will once again be held at tour host TravelCenters of America’s (TA) downtown Nashville location (James Robertson Parkway) on October 29, beginning at 6 p.m. CST.
The finale stop will include a performance by Overdrive-Red Eye Radio’s Trucker Talent Search winner Nate Moran and a few other special guests, as well as food, drinks, a bonfire and giveaways. The performance is open to the public and invites all ages to attend.
This is Lawler’s third year on the tour – hosted by TA and Petro Stopping Centers and sponsored by Schneider and new sponsor EpicVue.
“I have had the opportunity to sing the praises of the trucking industry for several years now and it is such a loyal, amazing community of individuals who work hard to keep our country running,” said Lawler. “I started doing the Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour as a way to give back to the men and women drivers who do not have the time, opportunity or funds to hear live music. We figured we would bring it to them, while getting out on the road and spreading the good works and message of the trucking industry. This is our third tour and it keeps evolving each year and reaching a larger audience, especially this year with the release of ‘Goodbye Go’ at country radio. I’m so honored to be TCA’s Highway Angel spokesperson, and adore being on the road meeting new people and reconnecting with familiar faces from tours past. I can’t wait to see where 2016 takes us!”
Launched in August 1997, the Highway Angel program has recognized hundreds of drivers for the unusual kindness, courtesy, and courage they have shown others while on the job.

Lawler’s first single, “Goodbye Go”, debuted at country radio in June and can be heard on stations nationwide. A limited edition copy of her album, “Two Peaches, Six Cookies” is now available in all TA and Petro locations nationwide and features bonus track “I Drive”, written specifically for TA’s Citizen Driver program.
