About The Band
Forming in 1996 Athens, Georgia, Drive By Truckers
is a country band that knows what they're doing and find themselves standing tall among the rest of the country music scene
with their creative and incredible releases. Starting out strong with their releases "Gangstabilly" and "Pizza Deliverance"
in 1998 and 1999 respectively, they were moving along at a steady pace with their intense tour regimens. They hit it big with
their double album "Southern Rock Opera", an album that explored the history of Lynyrd Skynyrd into a fictional narrative
following a fake band, taking place in the 70's in the South. From there they continued on releasing their incredible albums
such as "The Dirty South", "The Big To-Do", "Go-Go Boots", and with even more on the horizon.
By Truckers definitely started out on the right foot when they entered the world of music in 1998 with "Gangstabilly", their
debut album, and while they would follow it up with even more stellar releases, it would be a few years before they finally
gained the mainstream attention that they deserved. Through intense touring and fantastic work in the studio, it was in 2001
that Drive By Truckers released their most popular album at the time, and it was a concept album called "Southern Rock Opera".
The album was a complete success, garnering them a substantial increase in their fanbase and tour, and were even named Band
of the Year by No Depression.
Drive By Truckers Trivia
Often times when a group of people decide to start
a band, the names that they come up tend to not be the best options that they come up with. The two biggest forces behind
Drive By Truckers, Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, definitely fall under the category of "tried out a few names that didn't
quite work" before they began working on Drive By Truckers. Going through a few bands before they hit the prize with their
current band, they had tried out a slew of names that didn't have the best ring to them. Some of the names include "Adam's
House Cat", "Virgil Kane", and then one more that was too vulgar to gain any sort of mainstream popularity, despite their
musical prowess. It's very possible that it could be the combination of musical artists or they finally hit their stride,
but Drive By Truckers is a name that suits them just fine.
When you find yourself in the
audience at a Drive By Truckers show, you'll be too busy having a great time and grooving to their music to think to yourself
how lucky you are to be there, but that's part of the magic of their shows in the first place. Over the years this band has
created so many fantastic hit singles and albums that it would be hard to cram them all into one night, so you had better
get ready to hear the best of the best when you head out to see the Drive By Truckers play live! The tickets that you need
