In the latest edition DBT cover artist and all around badass Wes Freed Interviews writer Dallas Hudgens with the Dixie Butcher, Jyl Freed chipping in a question or two.
Jyl turned me on to Dallas earlier this year and connected Dallas and I via email. Dallas was kind enough to send me a signed copy of his book Drive Like Hell and I loved it. Really, really loved it.
I want to be in the film version so bad.
Here's my write up on Drive Like Hell back in Feburary.
Check out Dallas Hudgens website and his upcoming book Season of Gene.
Also, here's LHB's archive of artist on artist interviews:

While we're talking Wes, he's got some really special DBT art work for sale:
CD Art- Wes Freed:
"For the first time ever, with the blessing of The Drive-by Truckers, Wes is going to sell a couple of pieces of original artwork that The Drive-by Truckers made official use of. We'll be selling them through the website, first come, first served. "
Warm in the Wake is opening up for DBT tonight and tomorrow night.
If you've recently broken a toe or two then you SHOULD NOT listen to this band. Yer metatarsal malady will only be worsen by the foot flapping tunes produced by this Decatur, Georgia based band.
I dig it.
A base of Beatles, a dash of Deathcab, cup of Wilco Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, sprinkle on some Flaming Lips.... some of the boys are from Alabama.... currently making music in Georgia (and we know how good that combo is).
Get to the show early and be sure to check out Warm in the Wake opening for DBT.
