Some Big Country & Western Stars From Colorado

by Rudy Grant

Well, Lets Take A Look At This Thing .On January 10, 1976, “Convoy” by C.W. McCall was the #1 song on the American pop charts. It celebrated CB radios and the exploits of a rebellious trucker with a reckless disregard for human life and highway safety codes. It gave the gravelly-voiced C.W. McCall his biggest hit, except that technically, “C.W. McCall” was a figment of the imagination. The genius behind “Convoy” was, in reality, an Omaha advertising executive named Bill Fries…not a fearless runner of police roadblocks, but certainly a man with a finger on the pulse of one of the strangest fads ever to grip the nation, even by the standards of the 1970s.
