The C.W. McCall character was originally created in the 1960s by William Fries, then an advertising executive in Omaha, as a selling tool for a local bakery. Fries released an album in 1974 as C.W. McCall and thereafter became associated with the truck driving craze of the 1970s. Best known C.W. McCall songs include the mostly spoken "Convoy" (1975), which topped both the country and pop charts, and "Wolf Creek Pass" (1975).
