After posting “Stolen Car” yesterday, I feel like I should find a way to slip Johnny Cash’s “One Piece at a Time” in before “Carl Perkins’ Cadillac” by the Drive-By Truckers. But that’s not the way the times work out, so we’ll just move right along. I’ve already mentioned the Drive-By Truckers’ frontman, Patterson Hood, as one of my favorite songwriters. If you’d like to compare Hood’s work to the Tom Pettys and Warren Zevons of the world, go check out the Drive-By Truckers’ Southern Rock Opera and Dirty South albums, both of which are pretty great.
