Imagine being in a traveling band and staring down the prospect of trying to play a rock show in a town on the night said burg's baseball team is playing in Game 7 of the World's Series, at home, no less.
When it comes down to it, the Jack Daniels-swigging, Southern rock-swaggering force of nature that is the Drive-By Truckers is grounded in great songs. Patterson Hood and Jay Gonzalez prove it in this special duo acoustic session.
