Southern Grown Festival Concert Headlined by Drive-By Truckers

Saturday, September 2
8 p.m.
Rainbow Island

The music of the American South in a two-act forum culminates with the arrival of headliner Drive-By Truckers, from Athens, Georgia and opening act The Whiskey Gentry. The VIP section is catered by Chef Chris Dickerson of Corner Taco from Jacksonville, Florida, while the local favorite, Southern Soul, takes over the Cook House.

Drive-By Truckers have always been outspoken, telling a distinctly American story via craft, character, and concept, all backed by sonic ambition and social conscience. Founded in 1996 by singer/songwriter/guitarists Mike Cooley and Patterson Hood, the band have long held a progressive fire in their belly. AMERICAN BAND’s considerable force can in part be credited to the sheer musical strength of the current Drive-By Truckers line-up, with Hood and Cooley joined by bassist Matt Patton, keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Jay Gonzalez, and drummer Brad Morgan – together, the longest-lasting iteration in the band’s two-decade history.

The Whiskey Gentry has been tearing up the road for the better half of the last decade, logging over 150 shows each year, and winning over crowds at major festivals such as Shaky Knees, Shaky Boots, Merlefest, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion, FloydFest and many others. With the release of Dead Ringer they’ll continue this trend, bringing their raucous, high-energy shows to audiences from coast-to-coast.
