Additional Bowden Comments
Well done Andy and Vinny picking A: “Lonesome Truck Drivers Blues” by Bill Monroe. Carter Stanley was Bill’s guitar-man of the Blue Grass Boys at this time, summer 1951. Carter sang with Bill on 4 records, but not this one — he just played guitar.
B: Truck Driving Son of a Gun, was a Dave Dudley record as he really cashed in on truck driving songs. Not bluegrass.
C: Giddy Up Go was a hit truck driving “weeper” by Red Sovine in the country western field.
D: Highway of Regret is a Stanley Brothers record, but has nothing to do with truck driving.
E: Widowmaker was THE big hit bluegrass truck driving song but it was by Jimmy Martin.
Jimmy was so proud of his success with Widowmaker that he had the word painted on his bus! Just like on the LP cover. Seems like it might be a jinx!
F: Truck Driving Booger (instrumental) is a title I made up based on a Ralph Stanley banjo instrumental called Big Booger.
G: End of the Road is a Stanley Brothers gospel record — not about truck driving.
