Truck Stop

Truck Stop is a German country band from Hamburg founded in 1973. Originally the band played English-language country music and released four albums, though sales began dropping. In 1976 they tried something different: “Die Frau mit dem Gurt” was their first song in German and was immensely popular. The band then decided to stick with German country songs.

Take it Easy, altes Haus

In 1979 Truck Stop took second place in the contest for the German contribution to the Eurovision Song Contest with “Take it Easy, altes Haus”. Since then the band has been a welcome guest on numerous television music shows and received many awards in the country music genre. They wrote and performed the title song for the popular television police show “Großstadrevier” and collaborated with Stefan Raab on the “Maschen-Draht-Zaun” title song in 1999.

First endorser

Truck Stop has been one of our endorsers since March 1998, making them our very first band. They kicked off our era of endorsements.

40 years and great times

2013 – the anniversary year: Truck Stop celebrated 40 years and great times. Under the same name “40 Jahre….geile Zeiten” the new album was released and the band presented special anniversary shows. German country music still demonstrates durable success.
In 2015 Truck Stop released two LPs: “Country Freunde für immer” and “Männer sind so”.

Hamburg Homage

Hamburg is the band´s hometome. For 40 years the songs tell of truckers´ dreams, love and Hamburg. In 2016 Truck Stop presented the album “Unser Hamburg” (our Hamburg) with songs about their hometown. They thus fulfilled a small dream for themselves.
