Apr 14, 2015

Recording artist and Highway Angel spokesperson Lindsay Lawler will kick off her third Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour on April 22. The first concert will take place at TA’s San Antonio Petro Stopping Center location at 1 p.m.   Travel Centers of America is hosting the third annual tour. The Tour will include 15 TA/Petro locations in all, with stops in Colorado, Connecticut, Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Tennessee, Ohio, Missouri, Louisiana, Illinois, Iowa, Virginia, Florida, Kentucky and Arkansas.  

Recording artist and Highway Angel spokesperson Lindsay Lawler will kick off her third Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour on April 22.

“I started doing the truck stop tour because I wanted to reach the trucking community and share the music that I created about them and the industry they so proudly represent,” Lawler said. “We’ve had a lot of fun, learned a few lessons, and now, getting ready to kick off our third tour, we feel we’ve somewhat mastered the truck stop tour concept. I am so proud to be the spokesperson for Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) Highway Angel program and I’m really excited for this tour to go back to the truck stops.”   Each tour stop includes an hour-long acoustic performance by Lawler from her flatbed truck stage, with select locations to include live radio coverage.   For the performances in San Antonio, as well Missouri, Illinois, Colorado and Connecticut, Lawler will serve as musical host for TA’s Citizen Driver local unveiling and reception ceremonies.   At each unveiling, the TA or Petro location has been renamed for one of the 2015 Citizen Driver honorees and Lawler will perform for the family, friends and dignitaries present for the unveiling and reception that follows.

  Citizen Driver is a program launched by TA in 2013 that recognizes hard-working men and women of trucking that lead exemplary lives, both on and off the road.   Lawler recently penned “I Drive,” a song co-written by her producer Chris Roberts, specifically for the Citizen Driver program, which will be performed at each ceremony.   In addition to hosts TA and TCA, Wholesale Truck and Finance and Schneider Trucking are also returning as sponsors of the event. New to this year’s tour is a sponsorship from EpicVue – a company that offers in-cab satellite TV packaged specifically for commercial fleets.   Here’s a list of stops scheduled so far:   San Antonio Petro Stopping Center April 22, 2015 1112 Ackerman Road San Antonio, TX 78219 1 p.m.   Oak Grove TravelCenters of America May 11, 2015 100 North Broadway Oak Grove, MO 64075 12 a.m.   Bloomington TravelCenters of America May 15, 2015 505 Truckers Lane Bloomington, IL 61701 5:30 p.m.   Commerce City TravelCenters of America May 20, 2015 5101 Quebec Street Commerce City, CO 80022 11 a.m.   Willington TravelCenters of America May 23, 2015 327 Ruby Road Willington, CT 06279 11 a.m.   2015 Iowa 80 Truckers Jamboree July 10, 2015 755 W.
