Drive-By Truckers

The Drive-By Truckers have been the premier Southern rock band for several years now, releasing album after album of roots rock that would bring a smile to the face of any Allman Brothers or Lynyrd Skynyrd fan. Younger fans have also flocked to the band that so often tells a story with each tune they play. The band has been blessed with a number of excellent songwriters and have impressed fans with their social awareness and involvement with a number of charities.

The 60s were a time frequently remembered for the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll that so often permeated the culture, but the 60s were also a time when political activism and social discourse became a badge of honor for America's youth. In that environment there is no doubt that the Drive-By Truckers would have been one of the main attractions were they to have been available for the Woodstock stage. So the Drive-By Truckers... definitely Woodstock!
