COUNTRY rock chick Jayne Denham is well known for her admiration of the men and women of the trucking world and it seems the feeling is mutual.

Several of her songs have caught the attention of one of Australia’s largest trucking companies, Wickham Freight Lines, and the group has offered her a sponsorship deal.

It will see her face travelling around the country on the side of a refrigerated van. And the rig will more than likely make an appearance at several of her shows throughout the year.

“Truck drivers keep this country moving and we would not be where we are as a country without them,” Denham said.

Denham’s song Cousin Jude, about a female semi-trailer driver, from her debut album Sudden Change In Weather, was embraced by the trucking fraternity and led to her appearing at truck shows around the country.

She has even performed for Wickham’s staff at two of their Christmas parties.

Denham’s latest album, Shake This Town, includes similar trucker tributes in the shape of Road Train Fever and Trucker Chicks, the latter set to be released as a single later this month.

Denham is playing at The Centre at Beaudesert this Friday at 8pm. Tickets are $29.50 and available from www.liveatthecentre.com.au before performing at Lights on the Hill at Gatton on Saturday night.
