Drive-By Truckers
02/20/09 at 08:39 AM by CellarGhosts


It's a shame that mainstream country music, with its contrived lyrics, overwhelming amount of sameness and faux-Americana pandering has succeeded in turning so many people off of the country music genre, as there is plenty of excellent country music out there. Case in point: Athens, Georgia's Drive-By Truckers. Playing a fresh, interesting brand of alt.country, they've become a staple in the alt.country world. While most people seem to favor the critically-acclaimed Southern Rock Opera, I feel their best moment is The Dirty South. Songs like "Carl Perkins' Cadillac", "The Day John Henry Died" and "Tornadoes" rank among their finest work. Definitely give this band a shot sometime.

Unless you already have it. I'm sure most of you do. But if you don't, then change that.
