  2. Joe Nichols on Bentley, the Band and Why There's No Justice in MusicRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday | RollingStone

Nevertheless, the song was the high point of a set that included covers of both Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back" and the Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." Earlier, he chatted with Rolling Stone Country about his love of the Band, hanging with Dierks Bentley and country music's coming sea change.

As we celebrate the Band's genre-defining debut, released on July 1, 1968, let's move further off the beaten path to explore a handful of lesser-known favorites After reaching across generations on the solemn and startling "Tears of Rage," the Band leapt into a rambling groove - with Robbie Robertson taking a rare lead vocal turn for a Bob Dylan-esque exploration on the idea of salvation.
