Women In Trucking is proud to announce Country-Rock sensation and trucking advocate Jayne Denham as the organization’s ambassador for the next 12 months, beginning her duties at the 2019 Accelerate! Conference & Expo. The 3-day event, focusing on gender equality, will take place at the Sheraton Dallas September 30th - October 2nd featuring over 60 educational sessions on critical transportation issues and trends along with perspectives of women in the industry. Kicking off the festivities, Denham will treat attendees to a performance at the conference’s State Fair Bash.

Jayne Denham expresses “I am really excited to be an ambassador for 'Women In Trucking.’ Cheering on women drivers through my music is something I have been passionate about since my first songs were released 13 years ago. Helping shine a light on women drivers and see changes for women drivers is a huge honour.  I can’t wait to perform at the Accelerate! Conference and get the party started.”

Known for her songs that resonate with the trucking community, Denham’s #1 Australian country single, “Addicted to the Diesel”, helped raise the profile of the transport trucking community.  The music video for Denham’s “White Coffee & Black Lines” is set to feature stars of History Channel’s hit show Ice Road Truckers. Jayne will perform the single, which was just released at the Great American Trucking Show, during the Accelerate! Conference & Expo.

Ellen Voie, President & CEO of Women In Trucking, states “Jayne Denham’s songs tell a story, and her story resonates with all of us who share a passion for the women and men who spend their days behind the wheel of an 18-wheeler. We loved her song, ‘Stacks,’ but the new, ‘Black Coffee & White Lines’ hits home with its depiction of life on the road.  We’re especially thrilled to have our own Image Team members featured in her latest video. You don’t want to miss this concert!”

A household name in country-rock, Jayne Denham has taken the stage at several national country music festivals, entertained VIP crowds at Keith Urban’s Sydney shows, and consistently leaves audiences talking for weeks.

Registration for Women In Trucking’s 2019 Accelerate! Conference & Expo is currently open.
