AllMusic Review by

Actually, not all of the songs here are about truck driving, but they are all songs about being out on the road and in motion. Well, mostly, anyway. It's difficult to think of Roy Acuff's maudlin "The Wreck on the Highway" as a driving song, since it has exactly zero motion in it and it just makes one feel sad and alone. But then Dave Dudley's "Six Days on the Road" is everything a trucking song ought to be, full of motion, direction, and a sense of urgency. No, the real problem with this set is that these aren't the original versions of these songs but are instead, as they say, "new stereo recordings by the original artists." Keep that in mind before leaving on your road trip with this disc in the player.
