Drivin' N' Cryin' is an American hard rock/Southern rock band from Atlanta, Georgia.
The band was formed in 1985 in Atlanta. Kevn Kinney hooked up with Frank French at Frank's recording studio, "Dragon Path Music" working on his original songs there at night & working at times at Frank's shop "Far East Futon Company" in Atlanta. Kevn also hooked up with Tim Nielsen, who was in a popular band called the Nightporters with drummer Paul Lenz at the time. 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 Kevn’s many songs that reflected the two directions of their music.
