LOUISVILLE, Ky. — It will be a country music celebration as Westwood One’s Red Eye Radio network kicks the Mid-America Trucking Show up a notch.
Celebrating 50 years of radio, Red Eye Radio will be celebrating its anniversary at the Mid-America Trucking Show. There will be live appearances and musical performances by Country artists Gretchen Wilson, Jessie G, Bridgette Tatum, Jayne Denham, Dustin Collins, Olivia Ooms, Taylor Barker, Tony Justice and more.
Gretchen Wilson went overnight from talented obscurity to phenomenon. Her meteoric rise, the kind experienced by only a handful of artists in the past few decades, was that rare instance where talent and moment meet to form a cultural tidal wave. Her accolades include over 10 Million Albums sold worldwide, 11 major music awards (including a Grammy), and 10 top 10 hits. She will be at the Red Eye Radio Lobby Booth Thursday, March 28 for an autograph session where she will meet and greet MATS attendees.
In addition to Gretchen on site, her friends Jessie G and Bridgette Tatum will also be performing at the Red Eye Radio booth. Other performers include Jayne Denham, Dustin Collins, Olivia Ooms, Taylor Barker, and Tony Justice with a special guest appearance by Mountain Man from A&E’s Duck Dynasty.
Visitors to the booth will also be able to register for daily drawings for CB Radios, GPS Units, and much more.
The Mid-America Trucking Show, a trucking convention with over 70,000 attendees, will take place March 28-30 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville. Eric Harley, host of Red Eye Radio, will be on site to introduce attendees to the sizzling lineup of country music artists who will mix and mingle, take photos, sign autographs, and engage with drivers.
It’s all happening at Red Eye Radio’s South Wing lobby booth 41064. For specific days, schedule, and details visit www.redeyeradioshow.com.
