Drive-By Truckers playing two shows at Shoals Theater | | The Times Daily | Florence, AL:

"FLORENCE - Emma Lucas frequently leaves the Shoals to see one of her favorite rock bands, the Drive-By Truckers, but in July, she and other fans won't have to drive far.

The popular rock band has scheduled two shows at the Shoals Theater in downtown Florence on July 23 and 24.

'I've seen the Drive-By Truckers dozens of times over the past few years in venues and festivals across the country,' Lucas said. 'It's always surreal to be hundreds or thousands of miles from the Shoals and listening to musicians and songs deeply rooted in this area.'"

The rest of this post is going to be down and dirty. Traveling always screws me up.

It sucks when the dude sitting next to you on the plane smells like the cabby that brought you to the airport. Cab ride = 15 minutes. Plane ride = 2 hours.

Jackson influenced music produced in Muscle Shoals' heyday | | The Times Daily | Florence, AL:
"Michael Jackson's musical genius was never directly linked to the renowned Muscle Shoals music and he never recorded a song here, but he still had an influence.

Many involved locally in the industry say Jackson influenced the music being produced in the Shoals during the 1960s and '70s.

Jackson died Thursday at age 50. His death was viewed as a huge loss by many involved in the local music industry.

'A great talent is gone,' said Jimmy Johnson, an original member of the Swampers, a collection of local musicians who helped make dozens of top hits."
