The year is 1997. Gas costs $1.19 a gallon, and Drivin N Cryin is a three-piece band comprised of founding members Kevn Kinney on vocals/guitar and Tim Nielsen on bass/mandolin, along with Jeff Sullivan on drums. You probably haven’t heard much about their Kosmo Vinyl self-titled album. The record had a short life on radio, with their cover of John Denver’s “Leaving On A Jet Plane” getting some airplay in Alabama. Why this album went relatively unnoticed is a mystery. But it’s back now in all its glory so don’t miss it this time.
