I’m just catching up with ex-Drive-By Truckers bassists and vocalist Shonna Tucker’s new project, Eye Candy.
Apparently the word has been out for some time , but somehow it’s been flying under my radar. The Athens, GA based band set up a Facebook page today and a repost by my bud at Country Fried Rock drew my attention.
From what I’ve been able to piece together aside from Tucker the band will be Athens musicians Clay Leverett (drums) and Bo Bedingfield (guitar), as well as Truckers steel guitarist John Neff.
Shonna assured me on twitter that she would be sending me more information on Eye Candy. Look for updates when I get more details.
Check the cut below and the video from a show at the storied 40 Watt club and let me know what you think.
