American singer-songwriter, activist and politician best known for his truck-themed outlaw country songs, particularly his 1976 #1 hit "Convoy," which came at the peak of the CB fad in the United States. It sold over two million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. in December 1975. A dozen McCall songs appeared in Billboard's Hot Country Singles chart, including the sentimental "Roses for Mama" (1977). In 2009, McCall was inducted into the Iowa Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. He died from complications of cancer on 1 April 2022 at age 93 in Ouray, Colorado.
