SouthBound: The Drive-By Truckers' Patterson Hood Explores The South's Psyche And Sound
The Drive-By Truckers’ new album “The Unraveling” comes out Jan. 31. Patterson Hood co-founded the band in 1996 with his longtime musical partner Mike Cooley.
Hood’s father, David Hood, played bass in the Swampers – the legendary studio group from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, that played on hits by everybody from Aretha Franklin to Paul Simon.
Patterson Hood and the rest of the Drive-By Truckers have spent more than 20 years exploring the psyche of the South in their music. And lately, they’ve turned their gaze outward to the full American experience.
