- What fuels their non-stop trucking: Southern pride, a brawny three-axe attack, and musical stories that examine, embrace, and critique the South from all sides
- Why their brand of country rock sounds like it came from the ’70s: the band records all of their albums on old-school, open-reel tape recorders
- Real-life Southern figures who have popped up in DBT’s lyrics: Lynyrd Skynyrd, Carl Perkins, Sheriff Buford Pusser
- Who writes and sings these lyrics: the raspy, narrative-based Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, who has a deeper baritone and a more cryptic sensibility
- Why their latest album, English Oceans, is special: for the first time, the two frontmen have split the songwriting and vocal duties right down the middle (past records have leaned more heavily on Hood’s tunes)
- For insight into Hood’s songwriting process: click here for the Groupon Guide’s interview about his ode to holiday dysfunction, “The Thanksgiving Filter”
- How The A.V. Club defines their sound: “a synthesis of soul, rock, and country that is distinctly Memphisian”
- Consequence of Sound calls them: “one of the hardest working bands of the last 10 years—on tour significantly more days than they are not”
- Which makes them: the perfect touring buddies for Drive-By Truckers, as both acts have become tireless ambassadors of modern Southern rock
- Where to start with Lucero’s sprawling nine-album catalogue: 2003’s That Much Further West, which adds a shot of Replacements-esque punk to their sound
