Slobberbone is an American alt-country band from Denton, Texas, led by singer-songwriter Brent Best, Jess Barr, Tony Harper, and Brian Lane. Brent Best continues to tour as a solo act, performing both Slobberbone, The Drams, and songs from his solo record, but also reunites with both bands for intermittent shows with full band lineups.
Stephen King mentioned the band's song "Gimme Back My Dog" in his novel Black House. He also listed the song as one of the top three greatest rock and roll songs ever in his column in Entertainment Weekly. Although never publicly confirmed, the album 'Slippage' could very well be Slobberbone's nod to King. The word 'slippage' is an important term in Black House.
Rachel Maddow is also a fan, citing "Placemat Blues" from Everything You Thought Was Right Was Wrong Today as a favorite song.
Drive-By Truckers front man Patterson Hood sang on the Slobberbone song "Lazy Guy" on Barrel Chested. Slobberbone toured with the Drive-By Truckers constantly early in both bands' careers.
