Rob Hilton reports from Athens, Georgia, on Five Eight, a promising local rock band who's yet to make it big. But that could change with the band's latest release, The Good Nurse. It's a personal album for one of the band members, who wrote most of the songs after suffering a nervous breakdown and later surviving several illnesses in his family. The first pressing of the album sold out in a week.
