About Truck Stop

When you think of country music, Germany isn't exactly the genre's spawning place. But the country has birthed several country-based acts over the years, one of the most successful being Truck Stop. The sextet (comprised of gentlemen who go by such names as Prove Cisco, Lucius, Erich, Uwe, Teddy, and Knut) originally formed during the early '70s, and have issued albums steadily ever since. Their music and approach mirror that of their U.S. counterparts, as evidenced by the titles of their albums (Keep on Trucking, Louisiana Ladies, Highway 59), and such hit singles as "The Wild, Wild West," "Take It Easy Old House," and "Arizona, Arizona." Although virtually unknown in the U.S., Truck Stop's fan base remains strong in Europe. ~ Greg Prato
