Trucker Favorite Leland Martin Performing At Joplin Benefit

Missouri native, Leland Martin is scheduled to perform at the Trucker’s Jamboree in Joplin, Missouri on Friday, May 18th at 7:00 pm on the main stage.

Martin is a self-taught guitarist who began playing music at the age of 11 and is famous among drivers.  A former driver himself, Martin dedicates his music to truckers, their families and veterans.  His most well known song is, “Stone Cold Fingers,” is a driving anthem for many.
