'The Truckers' Last Ride' by Robert Morris

SENATOBIA, MS. ( - These are some of the lyrics of "The Truckers' Last Ride". They are lyrics that embody the last wishes of Doug Maten, a trucker who asked to be taken out of this life in the same manner he lived. The song, written in 1995 by Hall of Fame musician Col. Robert Morris, was inspired by the actual events of Doug Maten's life and death.

Nearly a decade ago through word of mouth and heavy play on C.B. radio waves the song went gold. Ten years later it's finding new life in the form of a music video. The video will be a renewed benchmark in a distinguished songwriting career.
Truckers' Last Ride was the first song penned by a composer whose library now totals over 600 pieces of work. The video will also be a first as the Colonel has teamed up with Director, Eric Stuyvesant, of Lucid Vision Entertainment. Col. Morris said, 'It's the right time and the right place. I have finally found the right people to make this happen.' Scott Wachtel will once again lend his cinematography skills to Stuyvesant's vision.

Colonel Morris should know about partnerships. His career has consisted of collaborations with Charlie Feathers, Cordell Jackson, and George Klunkie, to name a few. He also has shared billing with Justin Timberlake. Col. Morris, a former winner of the Pioneer Lifetime Achievement award, is excited about his latest venture. This is something fans have been clamoring for, for a long haul of a time.
