When you think of country music, Germany isn't exactly the genre's leading spawning ground. But Germany has birthed several country-based acts over the years, one of the most successful being Truck Stop. The sextet (comprised of gentlemen who go by such names as Prove Cisco, Lucius, Erich, Uwe, Teddy, and Knut) originally formed during the early '70s, and has issued albums steadily ever since. Their music/approach mirrors that of their U.S. counterparts, as evidenced by the titles of their albums (Keep on Trucking, Louisiana Ladies, Highway 59), and such hit singles as "The Wild, Wild West," "Take It Easy Old House," and "Arizona, Arizona." Although virtually unknown in the U.S., Truck Stop's fan base remains strong in Europe. ~ Greg Prato
