Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ deconstruc­ted

Since debuting in the mid 1980s, Atlanta-based Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ has crafted its own take on Southern rock. Led by guitarist/songwriter Kevn Kinney, the group has distilled its many influences into a sound all its own. A recent series of EPs set out to explore those various styles, and selections from those albums have been compiled on the new vinyl-only release, Best of Songs.
