On the Record: Drive-By Truckers' Patterson Hood

Last month, the Drive-By Truckers released their 8th studio album, The Big To-Do, a typically excellent collection Southern rock character sketches and story songs. The Georgia-based band — whose co-founders, Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, once lived in Memphis — has often peppered their music with local and regional references, including songs about Sun Records founder Sam Phillips and the night punk provocateur G.G. Allin played the Antenna Club.
