Guitarist and songwriter Patterson Hood is best known for leading the Southern rock band Drive By Truckers. A few years back he thought he’d try something different - writing a book. But what he ended up writing turned out to be a new collection of songs, called Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance.
