You call it a blog, I call it my therapy...welcome to The Long Haul! I'm an artist, writer, proud supporter of the trucking industry and lover of the road. I lead a crazy life where every day is different, and I get to meet some of the most amazing people along the way. This is a place to showcase these people, stories from the road, positively promote the trucking industry through my music, and hopefully provide a bit of comedy to get us all through the day. Come one, come all. 10-4 Good Buddy!!

ABOUT LINDSAY LAWLER
Lindsay Lawler is quickly becoming the face and voice of the trucking industry, providing a soundtrack for the lives of countless truckers across America. Lindsay brought her signature brand of rockin’ country vocals and dominant stage presence to the 2010 Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, TX. It was there that she formed a partnership with the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and has since been named the official spokesperson of TCA's Highway Angel program (www.truckload.org/highway-angel), which recognizes truck drivers who have saved lives and performed extraordinary acts on the road. As a result, for the past two years she has performed at many more Trucking events across the US including, Mid-America Trucking Show (Louisville), Great West Truck Show (Vegas), TCA’s annual conference, the Humanitarian Bowl and Idaho Famous Potato Bowl (Boise) which are sponsored by UDrove/Internet Truckstop, Pilot/Flying J’s annual event (Nashville), and the Texas Motor Transportation Association's annual event (Austin). Trucking companies such as Fikes Truck Lines, Sammons' Trucking, and Epes Transport, have also had Lindsay headline their annual events.
With its message of hope and mercy, Lindsay's Highway Angel song, has become a recognizable anthem for truck drivers and has given her tremendous exposure in the industry. Highway Angel is featured on Lindsay’s current EP, The Long Haul which can be found on ITunes along with her debut album Train Wreck. The Highway Angel music video is also featured in many training and promotional materials within the trucking industry. In addition, Lawler wrote and recorded the song The Long Haul for Women In Trucking, recorded American Trucker for Roehl Transport, and wrote and recorded He Loves The Road for former TCA chairman Gary Salisbury, who has been one of Lindsay's greatest supporters.
Lindsay has been featured on Midnight Trucking Radio, the Dave Nemo Show, and most recently was the featured guest on the Truckers News Celebrity Series Webcast. She has appeared in or on the cover of several trucking based publications including, Pro Trucker, Truckers News, Overdrive Magazine, Driving Force, Best Driver Jobs, OOIDA's Landline Magazine, Healthy Trucking, Driver Health, and the upcoming edition of TA's Road King Magazine. Lindsay most recently inked a deal with Renegade Radio Nashville (www.renegaderadionashville.com) to host her own radio show. The program will include segments on Highway Angels stories, trucking industry celebrities and professionals, driver requests, and an unplugged music segment featuring some of Nashville's biggest songwriters and performers, including music and commentary from the Highway Angel herself, Lindsay Lawler. The show kicks off July 17th.
Lindsay, who hails from Texas by way of Oklahoma, spent several years performing in Los Angeles before settling in Nashville, TN in 2007. She was a featured performer for 2 years at the famous Tootsie's Orchid Lounge on Broadway before branching off to pursue a career in the studio and on the road. Lindsay co-writes most of her music with her producer, Chris Roberts, a songwriter and artist at Warner Chapel Nashville.
Lindsay Lawler, the Highway Angel, continues to acquire new sponsors both in and out of the trucking industry. She notes her main goal is to bring a positive image to trucking, and awareness of the most amazing, hard-working and loyal people that make up the trucking industry. She continues to sing the stories of drivers from stage to stage, station to station, and considers herself beyond blessed to have found an audience and home within her trucking family.
