For musicians from the southern states of the United States, the musical influences of the region run deep. Even those
who don't chase traditional country or bluegrass music often incorporate those influences into their music. This is especially
true of the rock band Drivin' N Cryin'. Drivin' N Cryin' incorporates their Southern influences into their hard-rock sound,
creating a style all their own.
Drivin' N Cryin' formed in Atlanta and got their start in the city's underground rock scene. Their first album, Scarred
But Smarter, was released in 1986, and they instantly developed a following with their hard-rock-meets-southern-rock sound.
Their lineup shifted early in their history, but eventually it solidified in time for the band to reach a more mainstream
Although many of Drivin' N Cryin's fans have an extensive collection of the band's recordings, their music cannot be truly
appreciated from listening to their albums. Drivin' N Cryin' first developed a following thanks to their live shows, and they continue to create unforgettable shows for fans.
