Breaker-Breaker

"Breaker-Breaker" is a song by the American Southern rock band Outlaws. Written by Hughie Thomasson it is the opening track and lead single from the band's 1976 album Lady in Waiting. It peaked at number 94 on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at #19 in July 1976 in the Netherlands.[1] The lyrics capitalize on the 1970s CB radio fad. Brett Adams of Allmusic called it "bright, easygoing country-rock".[2]
