My Morning Jacket Seeks To Shed Southern Rock Label, Cares Enough To Comment About It

    My Morning Jacket may be the pride of Louisville, Kentucky, but the band’s drummer is sure about one thing: it isn’t a southern rock band. Patrick Hallahan, in a recent interview with Spinner, said that while he and his bandmates don’t fight labels, they “don’t consider ourselves a southern rock band by any stretch.” Though Hallahan goes on to deny the band’s bona fides by explaining away My Morning Jacket’s “Free Bird” performance in Elizabethtown, but the talk is not necessary; anyone from the South knows that Louisville isn’t a part of it- the city is practically in Ohio and is on the map because of a fancy horse race.
