Go-Go Boots, the eleventh album by Drive-By Truckers, was produced by their
longtime producer David Barbe.
The album builds on their roots with the old Muscle Shoals country-and-soul
sound. "We recorded nearly 40 songs last year and into this year and fairly
early on divided it into two separate albums" explains DBT co-founder
Patterson Hood. "The Big To-Do (ATOLP21701), released first, was the more
straightforward "Rock" album. Go-Go Boots is what I sometimes (semi-jokingly) refer to as our country, soul and murder ballad album. Those elements definitely play into it, but it's a little more open ended than that."
Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley continue to be the chief songwriters of the
group, continuing a musical partnership that has lasted over twenty-three years.
Bassist, Shonna Tucker, flexes her songwriting muscles once again by
contributing two original songs to the album. Brad Morgan (drums), John Neff
(guitar/pedal steel) and Jay Gonzalez (keyboards) round out the current Drive-By
"Drive-By Truckers are the best rock band in America." - CNN.com
