Lt. Dan Buckley​ here with my first DJ pick of 2017! It’s a great song called, “Ramon Casiano” from the Drive-By Truckers​ album American Band, released last year.

Drive-By Truckers celebrated their 20th anniversary as a band last year during the election year when so many people were trying to define what it is to be American. American Band was Drive-By Truckers’ response and definition to what it means for them to be Americans, an American band.

Listen to the single “Ramon Casiano” below and tell me what you think! It reminds me of post Uncle Tupelo​, Wilco​ / Son Volt​. I’m excited to see them Jan. 26 at Ryman Auditorium​ with Kyle Craft​! #L100DJPicks
