Drivin N Cryin


Celebrating their 35th 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

Atlanta’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, 35 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 Dave V. Johnson on drums, and the band’s newest member, Laur Joamets, (originally

Sturgill Simpson) added to the lineup, Drivin N Cryin continues to tour the U.S. to great acclaim.

Island Records re-released their highly recognized 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.
