FOCUS on the 615 had the pleasure of catching up with Tom Johnston and Pat Simmons of The Doobie Brothers when they were in Nashville. And yes, Nicki D. definitely brought out The Red Towel (her version of The Red Carpet) for this special moment. The Doobies chat about their 14th album Southbound, which features several collaborations with your favorite country artists. Johnston and Simmons reveal what they think of Blake Shelton, things they have on their tour bus, and their secret to longevity in the music business. Plus: boxers, briefs, or banana hammocks? The rockstars answer this and more in our hilarious segment called The Doobie Deets Lightning Round!
