Keep on Trucking

Drive-By Truckers: As Southern as they wanna be.

"I think about it," Isbell says. "We don't have plans to stop. But people get older, things happen. People aren't able to tour forever, unless you're Willie Nelson. I guess space can be an issue. Traveling and keeping the bus from being too crowded, keeping the vibe on the bus the right way, making sure everyone gets their own space before and after the show. That's our biggest area of concern now, figuring out how we can all be happy touring with a house trailer, basically. We don't disagree on the musical aspects of stuff. If we don't agree on something immediately, it's not worth messing with.

"We know each other well enough now that we know when to stay out of each other's way," Isbell adds. "It's just like playing with three guitar players in a band. It works that way personally off-stage too. You have to listen to the parts that others are adding and get in where you fit."
