This is a fond remembrance of one of Jason Isbell's biggest influences: Denton, Texas, outfit Centro-Matic, a band Isbell toured with in the mid-2000s. "You don't really hear good eulogies for your favorite bands," he explained to Rolling Stone. "Back in the day, I used to ride out with them and play guitar in their band, when the (Drive-By) Truckers weren't touring. I felt some real grief when they split up."
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
