LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The 2018 Mid-America Trucking Show will once again feature a free concert for all attendees on Friday, March 23, sponsored by ExxonMobil and the Mobil Delvac team.
Country music star and American Idol alum Kellie Pickler is set to headline the show.
While the concert is one of the most anticipated events at MATS, this year’s show promises to be special, organizers said.
With four solo albums – including the critically acclaimed ‘100 Proof’ — and a host of top 100 songs, Pickler is known for putting on a fun, high-tempo performance.
“Every year, the Mobil Delvac Driver Appreciation Concert gives us the chance to spend time with and honor the remarkable men and women who drive today’s trucking industry forward,” said Cassandra Clarke, commercial offer advisor for on-highway vehicles at ExxonMobil. “We’re proud to be sponsoring our 10th straight concert, and we look forward to celebrating with our colleagues and friends across the industry in Louisville."
Doors of the Kentucky Exposition Center will open at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, and the show will kick off at 7 p.m. EST.
Free tickets will be available at the Mobil Delvac booth (booth No. 18160 in the North Hall) on Thursday and Friday during regular show hours.
The Mid-America Trucking Show, which bills itself as the largest annual heavy-duty trucking event in the world, begins at 10 a.m. Thursday, March 22, with a VIP tour at 10 a.m.
Doors open to the all attendees at 1 p.m. March 22.
