I'm from very close to Nashville also. Western Express and Rusty Dog Express in Lebanon might both give you a chance. Plenty others. Get that cdl from a school and you'll be rolling down the highway soon.
How do I patch my life back together?

Being OTR you would likely miss quite a few appointments with your PO..
My last company hired 2 murderers fresh out of prison and CDL school.. One rolled a truck his first week or to in and they let him go.
Fact is you’d fit right in with some of the characters in this industry..
You won’t fit the mold of most large carriers (be thankful) but there is plenty of small carriers that won’t care about your personal drama..
lol, most of these carriers out here are professional thieves anyway..
I've lived in Nashville and born & raised within a few miles in an adjoining county.
We'll get some more company names for you.
Maybe TLD Logistics; don't know their policy on felons, but you can research that. Here's their website ; TLD Logistics Offers Trucking services, Truck Driver ...
Here's info on their training: Driving School
Here's some more company names that hire felons. Don't go by what's on the websites because they all bend the rules on hiring felons.
Carolina Logistic - www.carolinalogistic.com
Flat Creek Transportation - click here > Flat Creek Transportation
Southern Refrigerated Transport
May Trucking Company
Senn Freight Lines
Freymiller - www.driveforfreymiller.com - click on "Recent Graduates"
Big-M Transportation - mostly east coast runs
Paschall Truck Lines - mostly east coast runs
Western Express. CR England. Carolina Cargo. I am sure others can direct you to other second-chance companies.
A DUI nearly 30 years ago might be overlooked. I am unsure.
Like I said though, get a pre hire before you put time and money into a school. Hell, get multiple pre hires if you can!
Make CERTAIN that the company that pre hires you will accept students from the school you end up attending! This is critical! ASK the pre hiring company what schools near you they will accept students from, and ask them to email you that info so you can have it handy.ibcalm19 Thanks this.
