Country songs about trucks have become a cliche, but even so, Jason Aldean might have some fresh inspiration for his next album.

Aldean played a concert at the Sandman Centre in Kamloops last night.

Kamloops RCMP Corporal Cheryl Bush says this morning - one of the semi trucks carrying his tour equipment flipped on the Trans Canada Highway just west of Kamloops near Cherry Creek.

"The driver suffered minor injuries when the truck went off the right-hand side of the road, striking a rock, causing the truck to flip," said Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush. "The truck contained music equipment belonging to Jason Aldean's band, which had just performed in Kamloops and was on the road to its next tour stop in Prince George."

Bush says the cause of the crash is under investigation and it's too soon to say whether the driver fell asleep.

The tour has announced tonight's show in Prince George will be postponed until tomorrow night.
