Celebrating their 31st Anniversary together, Atlanta-based southern hard rock act, Drivin' n' Cryin', have spent most of 2016 on tour. In October 1985 Drivin' N' Cryin' played their first show at Atlanta's famed 688 Club. The band quickly gained attention for its blistering live shows and amassed a rabid fanbase in the fertile soil of the late-1980s music scene in the Southeast. Now, 31 years later, 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 on its laurels, adding Jason and the Scorchers axe man, Warner E. Hodges, to the lineup and continuing to tour the United States and Europe to great acclaim. In 2012, a documentary about the band entitled Scarred but Smarter: Life n Times of Drivin N Cryin was produced. In 2015, a vinyl-only collection of 10 choice cuts from the band's 4-EP
"Songs" series, entitled Best of Songs, was released on Nashville's Plowboy Records. Additionally, the band was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame the same year.
A quote, from the band's lead singer, Kevn Kinney, gives a little bit of insight into what Drivin n Cryin is all about: "We are a band that's like your record collection." The quote is from one of the first articles ever written about the band back in the Eighties. Their name derives from the eclectic nature of their 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.
