ATO Records is pleased to announce the release of The Drive-By Truckers label debut, The Big To-Do. The album, which will be the band s tenth in their thirteen-year career, is scheduled to be released March 16, 2010. The Big To-Do features thirteen new tracks from the Drive-By Truckers and was produced by their long time producer, David Barbe (Sugar, Bettye LaVette). 'It s very much a rock album,' says Patterson Hood of the Trucker s upcoming release. 'Very melodic and more rocking than anything we ve done since disc 2 of Southern Rock Opera.'
Hood and Mike Cooley continue to be the chief songwriters of the group, continuing a musical partnership that has lasted over twentythree years. Bassist, Shonna Tucker, flexes her songwriting muscles once again by contributing two original songs to the album. Brad Morgan (drums), John Neff (guitar/pedal steel) and Jay Gonzalez (keyboards) round out the current Drive-By Truckers lineup.
The band recently backed legendary R&B musician, Booker T. Jones, on his critically acclaimed, Grammy-nominated album, Potato Hole. The album is nominated for Best Pop Instrumental Album and Best Rock Instrumental Performance.

Perhaps one example will capture the genius apparent in this recording: was on a long trip to visit friends and slipped in the CD for the first time as I motivated down the highway. The words of the first cut, "When Daddy Learned to Fly", grabbed me by the heartstrings right away, yet for some magical reason the music made me happy instead of sad. The song's about the passing of a friend and mentor. I've lost one of those myself lately, and was touched by the lyrics. But at the same time the powerful rock & roll had me pounding out an impressive air guitar/drum solo on the steering wheel as I sailed along- until I realized the car was racing down the highway at warp speed and had to slow it down before this daddy learned to fly. This phenomenon illustrates the duality of the Patterson/Cooley thing. All the boys, and Shonna too, are on their game. If you love great music and have a hard-working soul, don't miss "The Big To-Do."
