Patterson Hood


The songs which comprise Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance were originally conceived as part of a novel written on the road while touring with Hood’s band Drive-By Truckers. While the book eventually fell by the wayside, the songs kept coming.
Featuring 12 new compositions from one of America’s most talented songwriters and storytellers, the album is co-produced by Hood and longtime collaborator David Barbe. The album features appearances from guest vocalist Kelly Hogan, members of Drive-By Truckers, Centro-matic, and Patterson’s fathers, the legendary Muscle Shoals bass player David Hood.
