  • Lyrics
  • 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."
