Drive-By Truckers

Formed 1996.
Drive-By Truckers


Drive-By Truckers are an alternative country/Southern rock band based in Athens, Georgia, though two out of five current members (Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley) are originally from The Shoals region of Northern Alabama, and the band strongly identifies with Alabama. Their music uses three guitars as well as bass, drums, and now keyboards. Like many alternative country acts, the Drive-By Truckers record in analog (using 2 inch, 16-track open reel tape recorders). However, unlike many of their contemporaries, the Drive-By Truckers have consistently pushed their labels to also release the band's records in a vinyl format.
