Convoy by C.W. McCall

William Dales Fries was born in 1928 who later became responsible for a TV advertising campaign in the 1970s featuring a fictional trucker called C.W. McCall which led to some minor chart hits in the U.S.

This song continued in that vein with the huge international fad of CB radio spreading.

The song was so successful that a couple of years later it was turned in to a film starring Kris Krisstofferson.
