The Truckers are about a third of the way into the ROCK AND ROLL MEANS WELL TOUR with dear friends The Hold Steady and Patterson Hood is happy to report: "That it has so far been even better than we had hoped or expected on every level, they are a great band and fantastic guys to hang out with. They bring it every single night and the bar seems to get raised with each show.

the 2 bands are alternating opening / closing each show so make sure you get there early !

Ill be at the Athens and Asheville shows too. The hold steady are a great band, get there early and dont miss them. The lead singer is into his music, thats all ill say. It took me a month or so of listening to them before they really clicked for me, but now I love them. Separation Sunday is my favorite album, good place to start, as is Almost Killed Me.
