Drive-By Truckers and Blitzen Trapper

And then there were two — again. Drive-by Truckers have watched Jason Isbell and now Shonna Tucker come up through their ranks before casting off for their own singer/songwriter careers. For the first time in seven albums, the most literary Southern-rock band of all time is down to just co-founders Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley on the vocals. It’s Cooley who one shines brightest on “English Oceans,” a mellower and more poetic effort that does end with one of Hood’s greatest songs yet, “Grand Canyon.” Chris Riemenschneider
