Drive-By Truckers' honcho Patterson Hood is behind a new effort to protect the downtown of Athens, GA. Currently, there is a development being planned that would bring a Walmart to the downtown. Read more about the effort here.
He's assembled some of the town's famous musicians to release the track "After It's Gone", credited to Patterson Hood & the Downtown 13.
Aside from some of Hood's DBT compatriots, Sugar's David Barbe, R.E.M.'s Mike Mills, and members of Widespread Panic are among the thirteen.
