About Drive-By Truckers
Driven by their social conscious and incredible talent, founding band members, Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood have led Drive-By Truckers for nearly three decades. In that time, they have toured extensively, playing over 2,500 shows on 3 continents, and opened for legends like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. They have done the late-night talk show circuit with Jimmy Fallon and Conan O’Brien and created chart topping albums like Brighter Than Creation’s Dark, English Oceans, and American Band. 

Their 14th studio album, Welcome 2 Club XIII, dropped this summer.  Joined by bandmates Jay Gonzalez (keyboardist/guitarist), Matt Patton (bassist), and Brad Morgan (drums), Cooley and Hood look back on their formative years with both deadpan pragmatism and profound tenderness, instilling each song with the kind of lived-in detail that invites bittersweet reminiscence of your own misspent youth.  Produced by longtime Drive-By Truckers collaborator David Barbe, the album took shape over the course of three frenetic days in summer 2021—a doubly extraordinary feat considering that the band had no prior intentions of making a new album. Featuring background vocals from the likes of Margo Price, R.E.M.’s Mike Mills, and Mississippi-bred singer/songwriter Schaefer Llana, Welcome 2 Club XIII was recorded live with most songs cut in one or two takes.

About Nathan Graham

He built his career over the last ten years as a guitar-for-hire, touring internationally with major label and indie acts, all while focused on songwriting and honing his skills as a solo performer.
