LINDSAY LAWLER SECURES DISTRIBUTION DEAL WITH TRAVELCENTERS OF AMERICA 


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 19, 2015) - Recording artist and Highway Angel program spokesperson Lindsay Lawler today announced a limited edition version of her latest album, "Two Peaches, Six Cookies", would be hitting the shelves of TravelCenters of America (TA) and Petro Stopping Center locations nationwide on August 28th. 

This special run of albums features "I Drive" - a song Lawler co-wrote with producer and Catch This Music talent Chris Roberts - written specifically for TA's Citizen Driver Award program, which recognizes the hard-working men and women of trucking that lead exemplary lives, both on and off the road. The song was added as a bonus track and is only available on the limited edition copies of "Two Peaches, Six Cookies" sold in TA and Petro locations. 

"I've long valued my relationship with TA/Petro and I'm so proud to offer an album so personal and specific to their brand and program," said Lawler. "With my album being carried in stores, I've taken another step toward my ultimate goal: to support and promote an industry that, quite frankly, our country couldn't survive without."

Lawler has been a long-time supporter of the trucking industry - originally partnering with the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) in 2010 to represent their Highway Angel program as an artist ambassador and spokesperson. Since then, she's developed and embarked on an annual Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour, now in its third year and sponsored by TA, Schneider, Wholesale Truck and Finance and EpicVue. 


"I started doing the truck stop tour because I wanted to reach the trucking community and share the music that I created about them and the industry they so proudly represent,” said Lawler. “We've had a lot of fun, learned a few lessons, and now, with this being our third tour, we feel we've somewhat mastered the truck stop tour concept. I am so proud to be the spokesperson for TCA's Highway Angel program - I love meeting new people, visiting with old friends, and performing for the wonderful men and women of the trucking industry."

Lawler's debut single, "Goodbye Go", was released to country radio June 6. The original release of "Two Peaches, Six Cookies" is available on iTunes.

Select TA/Petro Locations To Once Again Host Pro-Trucking Country Music Concerts
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 13 2015) – Recording artist and Highway Angel spokesperson Lindsay Lawler today announced the initial tour dates for the third annual Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour, hosted by TravelCenters of America (TA). The first performance is set for TA's San Antonio Petro Stopping Center location on April 22 beginning at 1pm CST. The Tour will include 15 TA/Petro locations in all, with stops in Colorado, Connecticut, Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Tennessee, Ohio, Missouri, Louisiana, Illinois, Iowa, Virginia, Florida, Kentucky and Arkansas.
 
"I started doing the truck stop tour because I wanted to reach the trucking community and share the music that I created about them and the industry they so proudly represent,” said Lawler. “We've had a lot of fun, learned a few lessons, and now, getting ready to kick off our third tour, we feel we've somewhat mastered the truck stop tour concept.  I am so proud to be the spokesperson for Truckload Carriers Association’s (TCA) Highway Angel program and I’m really excited for this tour to go back to the truck stops.”
 
Each tour stop includes an hour-long acoustic performance by Lawler from her flatbed truck stage, with select locations to include live radio coverage.
 
In addition to hosts TA and TCA, Wholesale Truck and Finance and Schneider Trucking are also returning as sponsors of the event. New to this year's tour is a sponsorship from EpicVue – a company that offers in-cab satellite TV packaged specifically for commercial fleets.
 
"We are thrilled to have EpicVue join our team of sponsors,” said Lawler. “Drivers are gone much of the time and don't always have the time or money to experience entertainment. We provide free entertainment to drivers through truck stop performances, while EpicVue makes it possible for drivers to enjoy quality television in the comfort of their cabs during downtime. They are a perfect fit for us!"
 
For the performances in San Antonio, Texas as well Missouri, Illinois, Colorado and Connecticut, Lawler will serve as musical host for TA's Citizen Driver local unveiling and reception ceremonies. At each unveiling, the TA or Petro location has been renamed for one of the 2015 Citizen Driver honorees and Lawler will perform for the family, friends and dignitaries present for the unveiling and reception that follows. Citizen Driver is a program launched by TA in 2013 that recognizes hard-working men and women of trucking that lead exemplary lives, both on and off the road. Lawler recently penned "I Drive", a song co-written by her producer Chris Roberts, specifically for the Citizen Driver program, which will be performed at each ceremony.
"As spokesperson for the Highway Angel program the last several years,” said Lawler, “ I've taken a sincere interest in drivers that go above and beyond their daily call of duty. I've met men and women that save a life on the road, deliver their load on time, and come home after several days on the road to shovel the driveway for their elderly neighbor. In my eyes, they're the rule. Not the exception. The Citizen Driver program is similar to the Highway Angel program in its recognition of these drivers and I’m thrilled to be including the Citizen Driver component in our first five stops on this year's tour."

COUNTRY RECORDING ARTIST LINDSAY LAWLER FINDS A FAN IN FORMER PRESS SECRETARY 


Lawler's Music Strikes a Chord With FOX News The Five Co-Host Dana Perino
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (September 11, 2014) - After several weeks on the road supporting and entertaining the trucking industry in her 2014 Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour, country recording artist Lindsay Lawler made a stop in Washington D.C. on Tuesday - this time to support the remembrance of fallen soldiers at the Truckload Carriers Association's Wreaths Across America Gala and Fundraiser at the Washington Grand Hyatt. Kicking off the event with a performance of the National Anthem, Lawler later treated the audience to an hour-long acoustic set. Attendees included Pilot Flying JPrime Inc.TravelCenters of America (TA)Wholesale Truck and FinanceCargo Transporters, and Tennant Trucklines, among others. But perhaps the most notable attendee of the night was the event's keynote speaker, former press secretary and current FOX News Channel (FNC) The Five co-host Dana Perino.
 
"My parents back in Texas are a big fan of Dana's work, both for former President Bush and as co-host on The Five," said Lawler. "She's every bit as kind, intelligent and classy as you'd expect her to be. For her to in-turn admire my music is such a compliment."
 
A compliment indeed. Not only did Perino thank Lawler for her signed EP during the night's keynote speech, but she included Lawler's self-penned Highway Angel during Wednesday's episode of The Five. In a tweet posted shortly after her gala performance, Perino stated, "Lindsay Lawler sang a new song she wrote today, 'One Mile at a Time' at the @WreathsAcross gala in DC. Would be a hit."
 
The gala raised over $250,000 for Wreaths Across America, an organization established to remember fallen soldiers through the placement of holiday wreaths on veteran graves at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as veteran cemeteries across the country.
 
Lawler's 2014 Highway Angel Truck Stop Tour will resume next week, with stops in North Little Rock and West Memphis on the 16th and 18th, and will conclude with a finale performance at the TA in downtown Nashville on September 25th beginning at 6 pm.
