WHEN WE asked you to send us pics of your mobile rigs for our “Your Take” contest, we didn’t expect to see an actual big rig. Enter reader Andy Kotz, who turned in the winning submission:

“My name is Andy Kotz and I’m from Monticello, MN. I am the epitome of ‘music-on-thego’! Unfortunately, my music hasn’t made me enough money to quit driving a Twin Express truck and trailer to support the family. But that doesn’t stop me from trying! I may just be the only ASCAP composer with music on TV that’s traversing the United States in an 18-wheeler.”
