Dave Dudley

Born David Darwin Pedriska in Spencer, Wisconsin, he is best known for such blue-collar truck anthems as “Trucker’s Prayer” and “Truck Drivin’ Son-of-a-Gun.” In 1963, he had his first hit with “Six Days on the Road”, a never-to-be forgotten truckers’ classic, as well as a Country hit that has been recorded by many artists over the years. He wasn't just involved in truck-driving songs, but also with other material. (His duet with Tom T. Hall called "Day Drinking" proved this.) However, he is one of the best-known singers of the truck-driving era and came to be regarded as one of the icons in this genre of Country music. During the height of his career, the nineteen-sixties and seventies, he had more than Thirty Top Forty Country hits.
