Drive-By Truckers

The Drive-By Truckers create solid music.  You would be mistaken to take “solid” as a generic way to describe their music.  When I say DBT creates solid music, I am saying that they are making some of the realist real music out there.  Their sound is deeply rooted in the southern rock and alt-country genres.  The sound is raw and the lyrics are honest.  Basically, it is solid.


There are a lot of under appreciated bands out there, and Drive-By Truckers would be one of those.  They have put out a lot of music since the mid 90′s, but it wasn’t until their recent release of The Big To-Do, that they finally got some mainstream media recognition.  Appearances on David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon’s late night gigs shined the spotlight on a band that needs to be listened to.  If you are looking for music that combines smart storytelling with gritty delivery, well, DBT is for you!  Not looking for that sort of thing in music?  Well, I would suggest putting a conch shell up to your ear.
