The songs featured on Diesel Tunes were written by Gentles who was a truck driver for 12 years. “Throughout my experiences and trials driving a truck, the songwriting kept me company during the hundreds of miles and lonely 12 hour days. I was constantly getting melodies in my head while driving and I would have to write them down on the nearest piece of paper and try to decipher chicken-scratch later on when I got home.”
