Since gracing the cover of Rolling
Stone for their “New Guitar Gods” issue and being
hailed by none other than Carlos Santana as “the
anointed one,” Derek Trucks is bringing his band’s music to a new height with the highly anticipated new album Already Free.
The chemistry between the band members in this
