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.
Martin says his music is inspired by Elvis Presley, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and Johnny Cash. “Haggard is a huge influence on the way I write today,” says Martin.
The Trucker’s Jamboree runs May 18-19, 2012 at the Joplin 44 truck stop, just off Exit 4 on I-44. CDL Life will also be at this year’s jamboree to bring you all the event’s highlights.
