Southern Rock group Drive-By Truckers will perform at 8 p.m. Friday, June 6 at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, 1050 A1A North, in Ponte Vedra Beach. The band Water Liars will open the show.

Hailing from Athens, Ga., the group recently released English Oceans, with 13 new songs. All but one of the songs were written by singer-guitarists and co-founding members Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley.

“I had time to write,” Cooley said. “After we came off the road last time, we decided we were going to let it rest for a while. So I had time to really focus. I kind of had to re-learn how to write  because I didn’t write as many songs as I’d wanted on the last couple of records. I was happy with these songs, and thrilled to go in and record so many that I felt real strongly about.”

“I don’t think we’ve ever had a record where Cooley was as deeply involved in every aspect of the making of it as he was this time,” Hood said.

“With Cooley’s writing, there’s almost no precedent for it in our catalog. He came in with this stunning bunch of songs, full of this beautiful imagery.”

Tickets are $30 for general admission. Tickets are available for purchase at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall and St. Augustine Amphitheatre box offices, findmytix.com, and all Ticketmaster outlets. Go to pvconcerthall.com for more details.
