Drivin' N' Cryin'
Drivin' n' Cryin' is an American Southern rock band from Atlanta, Georgia, United States.
The band was formed in 1985 in Atlanta when Kevin Kinney hooked up with Frank French at the latter's recording studio, Dragon Path Music, and began working on original songs at night and working at times at French's shop "Far East Futon Company" in Atlanta. Kinney also hooked up with Tim Nielsen, who was in a popular band called the Nightporters with drummer Paul Lenz. Kinney had just moved to Georgia from Milwaukee and was working in a sewage-treatment plant by day, while playing folk gigs by night. The band's name, Drivin' n' Cryin', was chosen from one of Kinney's many songs that reflected the two directions of the band's music.
