13-41: From Backroads To Backatown, 10/9/2013

From American Routes | Part of the American Routes series | 01:58:56

Drive-By Truckers and Trombone Shorty

Tshortyweb_small Follow American Routes as we travel the back roads for some new Southern sounds. The Drive-By Truckers have been up and down the highways since the mid-90s, delivering their unique mix of old-fashioned storytelling and rock 'n' roll, between stops in their hometowns of Muscle Shoals, AL and Athens, GA. We sit down with the band in uptown New Orleans to learn more about their journey in music. Then we head backatown to catch up with New Orleans' own Troy Andrews, a.k.a. Trombone Shorty, to hear about how he mixes trad jazz, rock and soul to create 'Superfunkrock.'
