Longtime truck driver advocate and public face of TCA’s “Highway Angel” trucker advocacy program Lindsay Lawler will bring the cause to the Capitol Beltway this week. She has been chosen as one of the music acts to help celebrate the lighting of the Capitol Christmas Tree in Washington D.C. on December 4th.
Lawler is well-known throughout the truck driving community as a young up-and-comer on the country music scene who takes her advocacy for truck drivers seriously. She also hosts a radio show that covers trucking industry issues on Renegade Radio Nashville.
TCA and several industry partners sponsored stops in Dallas and Nashville, both of which included performances by Lawler. She also sang at the initial kickoff celebration in Colorado. Lindsay has been working with the TCA since 2009 to raise awareness about the hard work and service that truckers do for their community and highways. Lindsay wears her Highway Angel pin with pride and says she is looking forward to bringing a positive message and music to the good people the trucking industry employs and maybe juice the volume up a bit more for the near-deaf ears in Washington.
Lawler became involved with the tree when she wrote a song that was chosen as the project’s official theme for 2012. Beating out nearly 300 competitors, “Standing Tall” describes the tree’s journey across America and its symbolism as a “light in the dark for us all.” The lyrics also praise those who fight for freedom so that Americans can continue to live the American Dream.
