Southern Gothic

With the exception of a couple of years, I’ve lived in the Deep South since September 2001. It’s been a cultural adjustment for a native of Chicagoland. My appreciation of quality Southern Rock has been greatly expanded. Tonight, I’m featuring two bands that have set the standard for Southern Rock. Drive-By Truckers (from Athens, GA and Muscle Shoals, AL) and the Black Crowes (Atlanta, GA). Both bands have successfully sustained a sound and narrative through their songs that’s unique while still rooted in the Southern Gothic tradition.
