I loved him in the Drive-By Truckers, and he has been good as a solo act. I hope you enjoy.
One big thing to watch: MSU will more than likely be without senior first baseman Wes Rea for a second-straight game. He was hit by a pitch on his knee last weekend and was held out of Sunday’s game due to soreness. MSU head coach John Cohen said he could play but probably won’t. His replacement for this game and the rest of the weekend will have a close eye from the fans and coaching staff.
