Just saw one of my fave bands, the Drive-By Truckers, tearing it up on the Conan O’Brien Show. They went to town on a song called “Shit Shots Count”, the opening track from their brand new album English Oceans.

The tune is written and sung by Mike Cooley, who I like to call an unheralded songwriting genius. Maybe you’ve heard his masterpiece “Zip City“.

Cooley shares the songwriting duties with singer-guitarist Patterson Hood, who ain’t no slouch either. Maybe you’ve heard his masterpiece “The Righteous Path“.

The group plays Vancouver’s Vogue Theatre on April 22.

See you there.
