Drive-By Truckers miss their last exit, have a ‘Happy Ending’

“When we go to see the Truckers play, we wear diapers so we don’t have to go to the bathroom,” declares a young female fan early on in The Secret to a Happy Ending, a documentary about Southern rock band the Drive-By Truckers.

Similar devotion to the Athens, Ga.-based Truckers led Washington, D.C.-area filmmaker Barr Weissman to spend nearly six years making what he calls “a love letter to rock ‘n’ roll.”

The film is making the rounds at festivals, including a closing-night screening at the Atlanta Film Festival on Friday, and Weissman hopes for a limited theatrical release. He also expects to get the film to DVD, as well as broadcast and digital channels such as iTunes, Amazon and Netflix later this year.
