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 atAtlantas famed 688 Club. The band quickly gained attention for their blistering live shows, andamassed a rabid fanbase in the fertile soil of the late-1980s Southeast music scene. Now, 33 yearslater, 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 anniversaryfor the band, having survived the pressures of fame, a shifting musical landscape, multiple lineupchanges, 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 stillrefuses to rest. In 2012, a documentary about the band, entitled Scarred but Smarter: Life n Times ofDrivin' N Cryin, was produced. In 2015, a collection of 10 choice cuts from the bands 4-EPSongs series, entitled Best of Songs, was released on Nashvilles 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 basementrecordings 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 theU.S. to great acclaim. Island Records re-released their much celebrated Mystery Road album through UniversalMusic Group (2017) & Darius Rucker cut Straight to Hell on his new album, When Was the LastTime, released October 2017 with guest vocal appearances by Luke Bryan, Charles Kelley, and JasonAldean. Mystery Road was named one of The 50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All Time by PasteMagazine that following year. In 2018, New West Records re-released their self-titled 1997 albumwith a new name, Too Late To Turn Back Now!. The bands new full-length album, produced byNashvilles Aaron Lee Tasjan and featuring Laur Joamets, Live The Love Beautiful, will be releasedJune 21, 2019 through Drivin N Cryin Records. A quote from the bands lead singer, Kevn Kinney, gives a little insight into what Drivin NCryin is all about: We are a band that's like your record collection. Drawing influence from a widearray of musical elements, Drivin N Cryin has developed a unique sound over the years. Their namederives 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 tankof gas, and no plans of stopping any time soon
