Watch Drive-By Truckers Rock “Pauline Hawkins” At The 40 Watt Club
We have an awesome mid-day pick me up for you. Check out this exclusive live video of alt-country icons Drive-By Truckers playing “Pauline Hawkins” at Athens’ legendary 40 Watt Club. “Hawkins” is the lead single off the Truckers’ latest release, English Oceans.
“I wrote ‘Pauline Hawkins’ the day after I finished reading Willy Vlautin’s book The Free,” head Trucker Patterson Hood tells us. “The song is from the point of view of his beautifully drawn character. We had already completed the album and reconvened the band to track and mix it four days after I wrote it. Sometimes the missing piece is found just in the nick of time.”
