    Singing trucker is taking internet by storm


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     firedude52 stumbled on Brad James's Facebook page and became a fan after hearing his renditions of popular country songs. James's Facebook page says that he has been a truck driver for over 20 years, and he records his songs while living life on the road. Brad James told us, "I am of course lip-synching to music that I have already pre-recorded. That is what the video is. I do all of my audio recording while the truck is stopped, and I am on my break. I have choosen to use a sound activated, windshield mounted video recording device to do the video part. This means that I never have to touch the camera. It automatically begins and ends. I have always taken the greatest care to ensure not only my safety, but the safety of the motorists around me."
