Red Sovine – The Artist

Woodrow Wilson “Red” Sovine (1917 – 1980) was an American country music singer and songwriter associated with truck driving songs, particularly those recited as narratives but set to music. His most noted examples are “Giddyup Go” (1965) and “Teddy Bear” (1976), both of which topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Red Sovine gained the nickname “Red” because of his reddish-brown hair. He died following a heart attack while driving. For many years after his death, his greatest hits collection (The Best of Red Sovine) was advertised exposing his music to a new generation of fans.

Teddy Bear – The Song

‘Teddy Bear’  is a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer Red Sovine. It was originally released in 1976 as the title track to Sovine’s album of the same name. The song — actually, a recitation with an instrumental backing — was one of Sovine’s many recordings that saluted the American truck driver. “Teddy Bear,” released during the height of the citizens’ band radio craze of the mid-1970s, is titled after the song’s main character, a young paraplegic boy whose semi-trailer truck-driving father had been killed in a road accident, and is left with a CB radio to keep him company. In the song, the little boy, refers to himself as “Teddy Bear”

The American Truck – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a silhouette of the front of an American  truck as inspired by the song.  A truck or lorry is a motor vehicle designed to transport cargo. Trucks vary greatly in size, power, and configuration. Smaller varieties may be mechanically similar to some automobiles. Commercial trucks can be very large and powerful and may be configured to be mounted with specialised equipment, such as in the case of refuse trucks, fire trucks, concrete mixers, and suction excavators. American Trucks are distinctive often due to the two large vertical exhaust pipes on the side of the cab.

Citizens band radio (also known as CB radio), used in many countries, is a land mobile radio system, a system allowing short-distance person-to-person bidirectional voice communication between individuals, using two way radios operating on 40 channels near 27 MHz (11 m) in the high frequency (a.k.a. shortwave) band.
