About the Drive-By Truckers
Patterson Hood and his longtime friend, Mike Cooley, decided to form a band. While Mike and Patterson had both played in bands
previous to this life changing decision, it wasn't until they joined forces that they really launched their music careers.
Along with a revolving group of musicians, Patterson and Mike, who called themselves the Drive-By Truckers, released their
first two albums, Gangstabilly and Pizza Deliverance in 1998 and 1999, respectively. After releasing their second album, they
felt the road beckoning, so they packed up and embarked on their first nationwide tour. This tour didn't just gain them thousands
of new fans, but it also inspired a live album called Alabama Ass Whuppin, which they released in 2000 by their record label,
Second Heaven Records. Due to their constant touring, the band developed a large and dedicated following that has remained
steadfastly loyal ever since.
In 2001, Drive-By Truck Drivers started working on Southern Rock Opera, a double album
that strove to make a statement about the cultural deterioration in the South by linking it the lifespan of Lynyrd Skynyrd.
This album went on to receive praise from both critics and fans, and the band decided to release a follow-up to the album
after signing with record label, New West. So in 2003, the band released Decoration Day, another concept album that this time
dealt with difficult life topics like murder, suicide, depression, marriage, incest, revenge, and breakups. This album also
received high praises from critics and fans.
In the years after the release of Decoration Day, Drive-By Truckers continued
to write, produce, and perform their own songs, their band lineup changing a couple of times while various members came and
went. In 2007, the band worked with Bettye LaVette, backing her up on her comeback album, The Scene of the Crime, which went
on to earn a Grammy Award nomination for "Best Contemporary Blues Album". Drive-By Truckers, a band that has already had such
a successful and prolific career, continues to produce and perform music for their fans. They are a band whose hard work and
great music gives them constant momentum and gains them fans every time they hit the road. Now it's your turn to check out

Hood and Mike Cooley first performed in other bands, such as "Adam's House Cat" and "Virgil Kane". They started a band together
that they called "Horsepussy", but split shortly after. A few years later, the duo reunited in Athens, Georgia, and fortunately
decided on a new name for their band.
