Jayne Denham is a country artist with a heart for the Trucking Community. Growing up around trucks and big rigs, Jayne has become passionate about creating more recognition for the trucking industry and its importance to the community through her songs, like her #1 Australian Country Single, ‘Addicted to the Diesel’.
Her new single ‘Stacks’ is co-written by Jayne, Phil Barton and ACM nominated songwriter Brian White who also produced the song, ‘Stacks’ was recorded at Jay DeMarcus(Rascal Flatts) studio in Nashville with Jay playing bass on the EP. The EP, which is slated for release in early 2018, features a mix of country rock with ‘Stacks’, ‘Calamity’ and ‘Highway Rock Star’, and ballads like ‘Fear of Flying’ and ‘Black Coffee & White Lines’.
Jayne mentions: “While writing for my next record in Nashville, my producer, Brian White and I were brainstorming ideas about trucking songs. He mentioned the title ‘Stacks’ which immediately took me back to my childhood. I remember as a kid going to truck races and seeing all those blinged up rigs screaming around the track. One of my favourite parts of the day was when the drivers would put the pedal to the metal and you would hear this loud roar and smoke come from those 11 feet of galvanized Chrome Stacks.”
Signed to management in the U.S. with Stacey Willbur, Jayne spent last year writing songs in the U.S. for her latest release. Her high-octane performances have seen her invited to perform at shows in the States, including the Mid-American Trucking Show in Louisville, KY and the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Texas where she had the opportunity to sing to the Women in Trucking Community, Red Eye Radio, WSM and Diesel Spec.
