Brad Morgan has been manning the drum throne for Drive-By Truckers for the past 20 years. His first album with the band was the critically-acclaimed double-record, Southern Rock Opera. That release set the Truckers' career into overdrive in 2001 and they haven't slowed their recording or touring habits since. On episode 036, Brad joins Jamie while on a short break between wrapping up tracking the new DBT record and their fall trek. Brad shares some great stories and insights into his beginnings as a musician, playing in various bands in the Carolinas and Georgia and being asked to cover a short tour with DBT that he never came home from. He also talks about the new DBT record, life on the road and how he is still his own drum tech. This interview was so much fun for us and is sure to brighten your day.
