Drive-By Truckers- Bio


Peter Grumbine reviews This Fucking Job

"When most bands make an announcement, they simply do that: they make AN announcement, but not the Drive-by Truckers. No, when you get some DBT news, you get all kinds of cool shit in your inbox.

Today the Truckers released “This Fucking Job” the first song off their upcoming album “The Big To-Do,” they unveiled the cover art by the always brilliant Wes Freed, they announced tour dates, and released more screening dates for the documentary on the band “The Secret to a Happy Ending.” That’s more than most indie shitheads do in a career, and it was just another Tuesday for the Truckers."

"and the occasional modern song (Dead Drunk & Naked by The Drive-By Truckers and Prison Grove by Warren Zevon)."

Don't worry, great music is on the way - ESPN:
"A week later, on March 16, new work from the Drive-By Truckers. Meaning that on March 17, you'll be able to find me hunkered in my bedroom with a bottle of whiskey to drink, a mixed-breed dog to pet, and the Truckers on my stereo. I'll be as happy as a man can be.

(Note: I do not own a dog, mixed-breed or otherwise. But I might buy one on March 15, to get ready.)"

If you haven't gotten Hubbards latest one you are missing out.

Sessions: Ray Wylie Hubbard | American Songwriter
Ray Wylie Hubbard, the bard behind Jerry Jeff Walker’s classic ‘73 cut “Up Against The Wall, Redneck Mother,” was visiting Nashville, up from his home outside of Austin, Texas, when he stopped in to discuss his new album A. Enlightenment B. Endarkenment (Hint: There is No C). The album features the title cut (inspired by his favorite Poe poem) as well as the co-write with Hayes Carll, “Drunken Poet’s Dream,” also the first cut on Hayes’ 2007 album Trouble In Mind. Hubbard discussed life in Texas as an elder statesman of songwriting, what it’s like taking guys like Hayes under his wing and new tools like e-mail (!) and Masterwriter that keep his songwriting fresh. Take a listen to three live tracks that Hubbard recorded in our office and, below the interview, check out the video of Hubbard playing the album’s title track.

The Stupidest Pop Lyrics Of All Time


Like 54k isn't just as 'monstrous'.

Judge slashes ‘monstrous’ fine in music piracy case | Raw Story:
"WASHINGTON — Condemning a two-million-dollar fine meted out to a Minnesota woman for illegally downloading music over the Internet as 'monstrous and shocking,' a judge has slashed the penalty to 54,000 dollars.

US District Court Michael Davis said the fine imposed by a jury on Jammie Thomas-Rasset, a single mother of four from the town of Brainerd, veered into the 'realm of gross injustice.'"

Just another day in the Tennessee Valley

Couple in court; body still missing | | The Times Daily | Florence, AL:
"Her car was discovered burned beyond recognition Friday on an isolated logging road in McNairy County. Authorities said a GPS unit in the car indicated it left the Beersdorf residence Thursday and was driven to McNairy County."

Salinger was still alive?!? We'll RIP, then, J.D.

J.D. Salinger Dead: 'Catcher in the Rye' Author Dies At 91:
"NEW YORK — J.D. Salinger, the legendary author, youth hero and fugitive from fame whose 'The Catcher in the Rye' shocked and inspired a world he increasingly shunned, has died. He was 91."
