Drivin N Cryin
Celebrating their 33rd Anniversary together, Atlanta-based folk rock act, Drivin N Cryin,
have spent most of their career on tour. In October 1985 Drivin N Cryin played their first show at
Atlantaâ€™s famed 688 Club. The band quickly gained attention for their blistering live shows, and
amassed a rabid fanbase in the fertile soil of the late-1980s Southeast music scene. Now, 33 years
later, and after releasing four full length albums on Island Records and one on Geffen Records,
founding members Kevn Kinney and Tim Nielsen find themselves enjoying a milestone anniversary
for the band, having survived the pressures of fame, a shifting musical landscape, multiple lineup
changes, and miles of back roads and highways to arrive here.
With a gold record, 10 full-length albums, and a handful of EPs to their credit, the band still
refuses to rest. In 2012, a documentary about the band, entitled Scarred but Smarter: Life n Times of
Drivin' Nâ€™ Cryinâ€™, was produced. In 2015, a collection of 10 choice cuts from the bandâ€™s 4-EP
â€śSongsâ€ť series, entitled Best of Songs, was released on Nashvilleâ€™s Plowboy Records. Additionally,
the band was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame that same year. The following year,
Drivin N Cryin released a vinyl-only album, entitled Archives Vol One, with a collection of basement
recordings from the years 1988 to 1990.
With Dave V. Johnson as their drummer, and the band's newest member, Laur Joamets,
(originally Sturgill Simpson) now being added to the lineup, Drivin N Cryin continues to tour the
U.S. to great acclaim.
Island Records re-released their much celebrated Mystery Road album through Universal
Music Group (2017) & Darius Rucker cut Straight to Hell on his new album, When Was the Last
Time, released October 2017 with guest vocal appearances by Luke Bryan, Charles Kelley, and Jason
Aldean. Mystery Road was named one of â€śThe 50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All Timeâ€ť by Paste
Magazine that following year. In 2018, New West Records re-released their self-titled 1997 album
with a new name, Too Late To Turn Back Now!. The bandâ€™s new full-length album, produced by
Nashvilleâ€™s Aaron Lee Tasjan and featuring Laur Joamets, Live The Love Beautiful, will be released
June 21, 2019 through Drivin N Cryin Records.
A quote from the bandâ€™s lead singer, Kevn Kinney, gives a little insight into what Drivin N
Cryin is all about: â€śWe are a band that's like your record collection.â€ť Drawing influence from a wide
array of musical elements, Drivin N Cryin has developed a unique sound over the years. Their name
derives from the eclectic nature of this sound: a little drivin' rock n roll and a little country twang.
Comfortable with their past and confident in their future, the band has an arsenal of songs, a full tank
of gas, and no plans of stopping any time soon
