A real life alt-country band. The Drive-By Truckers have been touring for12 years now, based out of the deep south. Their first live album was called Alabama Ass Whuppin'.
I saw their show at the All Good Music Festival a couple of years ago, the centerpiece of the performance was a bottle of Jack they passed all the way around the band in-between and sometimes during each song.
Early influences are said to be Sam Phillips, John Henry and of course Lynyrd Skynyrd; traces of The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and Neil Young can be heard on the newer stuff.
Mostly Midwestern tour and more songs are at myspace.
