Drive-By Truckers’ 2017 Road Trip

It’s a busy time for Drive-By Truckers.  The alt-country rock band performed its new album on NPR, appeared on CBS and locked down a January-February journey across the U.S.

American Band is the new album.  Fans listening to NPR’s First Listen Live series yesterday heard Drive-By Truckers run through every track on the album.  Check it out via this link.

A few days before Drive-By Truckers cruised into the NPR studios, the band appeared on “CBS This Morning: Saturday” to perform three songs from the LP as well as spend some quality time chatting with CBS senior correspondent Anthony Mason.  Because the internet is eternal, you can watch all the TV action by clicking here.
