Telluride Blues & Brews Festival

Drive-By Truckers

A true American band, Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. Lead by Paterson Hood and Mike Cooley's powerful Americana-style vocals and roaring southern-rock guitars the band has gained a cult following throughout the South and world alike. 
Their new album 'American Band' showcases a hard edged and finely honed sound while making a explicitly political statement. Touching on pressing issues as race, income inequality, the NRA, deregulation, police brutality, Islamophobia, and the plague of suicides and opioid abuse, the album calls for community and collective action. Get ready some righteous rebellion and a true southern rock n' roll show Telluride, the Drive-By Truckers are bringing the heat.
