Nascar & Spike TV: #iamdale

With a few members of the band growing up in Charlotte and Concord, we are feeling pretty humbled to find out our song "Truck Stop Man" was used in Nascar with Spike TV's "I Am Dale Earnhardt" special that just aired on Monday, March 2nd, 2015!  Many thanks to the fine folks there for including us in a such a great special. ‪






You can watch the full special now online at SPIKE.com and listen for Jack the Radio at the 18 minute mark!

Spike TV and #iamdale inspired this week's throwback Thursday to the time we played a 2011 radio event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on the inside of the track for debut of the world's largest HD tv screen (that's it about 100 yards behind us) measuring at 200 feet by 80 feet! They were kind enough to feed us and let us hang around for the race.

To top things off Chris ended up live on the air, on the big screen during the race.  Shout out to the Speed network's crew!

A few of us from the band along side Meg Johnson performed three songs by Ryan Adams to celebrate the book release. Here is video of our performance of "Come Pick Me Up" by Ryan Adams:
