Patterson Hood accidentally wrote an album. He didn’t want to, and wasn’t trying to, but sometimes the songs just come out.
Fronting Drive-by Truckers has kept Patterson busy, releasing nine studio albums, two live albums, two collection albums, and two collaboration albums. Plus he’s released two previous solo records—not to mention the thousands and thousands of tour dates over the past decade. Patterson was just looking for some time off, and the only plan he had was to not make an album.
A funny thing happens on the way to being a beloved, six year/ five album, workhorse rock and roll band playing 300 shows a year: life beats the shit out of you. From great suffering comes great art, and it’s all the better if there’s some pedal steal involved.
