Being a truck driver is one of the most difficult and under appreciated career paths, which can take you far away from loved ones while bringing you a brand new set of daily challenges. In Steve Moakler‘s new video for “Born Ready,” the challenges of balancing family time alongside life on the road is brought into the spotlight.
A modern highwayman’s anthem, “Born Ready” is the title track of Moakler’s upcoming fifth studio album, due out on CN Records late this year. Although the video is a straight-forward visual adaption of the lyrics, the sentiment is one that many can relate to.
“Whether your job has you behind the steering wheel or not, I think the road is a perfect metaphor for life,” Moakler says. “It’s about closing the distance between where you are and where you want to be. I hope the song inspires people to hang tough and to not turn around. That’s what it does for me.”
With an impressive catalog of music already in his back pocket, Moakler has quickly proven himself to be one of the most talented singer-songwriters in country today. An expert in crafting relatable and heartfelt story-songs, Moakler’s next release may just be one of the year’s best.
You can catch Steve Moakler out on the road later this year with his 2018 Born Ready Tour powered by Mack Trucks. Fans can find a full list of tour dates and ticking information at his official website.
