Songs of 2010 - "Get Downtown"
A year ago at this time, I'd never heard a single song by the Drive-By Truckers. Now, they may be my favorite band.
Their 2010 album, "The Big To-Do," was not their best, but it was 3/4 of a great album. The strength of the band is that they have two terrific songwriters and singers, Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley, whose styles are very different but complement each other perfectly.
This won't be the only DBT song on the list, but we'll start with a great Cooley rocker - "Get Downtown."
