LOUISVILLE, Ky. — If country music is your thing, the 2018 Mid-America Trucking Show had you covered. Bill Weaver, Tony Justice, Long Haul Paul, and Jayne Denham were among the many musicians to perform at the show. In case you weren’t able to attend, here’s your chance to hear several offerings of MATS music.

Weaver, an OOIDA member from Arkansas, performed at various booths throughout the show.

Justice, an OOIDA member from Tennessee, also performed at various booths including at the Red Eye Radio stage. A year ago, Justice served as the opening act for Thompson Square at the trucking show’s featured concert on Friday night.
