One of many country songs that salute the American truck driver, "Midnight Hauler" was part of a double A-sided single, paired with "Scratch My Back (And Whisper in My Ear)." "Scratch My Back ..." peaked at No. 8 on the Hot Country Singles chart in September 1981, before "Midnight Hauler" became the more-played song on country radio.
