The Drive By Truckers on Mountain Stage
This weekend's radio broadcast features the acclaimed southern-gothic rockers from Athens, Ga the Drive By Truckers
, Austin, TX string-band newcomers The Belleville Outfit, indie-pop trio The Spring Standards, the chronically sleep-deprived Steve Poltz and roots trio Sometymes Why. You're gonna dig the Trucker's version of Spooner Oldham/Freddie Weller's song "Lonley Women Make Good Lovers," sung by Shonna Tucker.
