Tunes that put places on the map
By M.B. Roberts
Many of our favorite songs celebrate imaginary places. Think Hank Williams and the Lost Highway. Or Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel at the end of Lonely Street. Even Bob Seger’s Main Street isn’t a destination you could find on your GPS.

As an independent trucker driving down the highway with your name on the side of the truck, you get to make all the decisions. No more dispatchers. No safety director telling you how to fill out your logs. Freedom to pick and choose what loads you’ll take. Total independence. Real freedom of the road!
