SINCE the ’80s, Drivin N Cryin has walked the line between criminally underrated and critically lauded. They’re a band that isn’t confined by genre, and often seem to musically do whatever they want. That sense of creative freedom has awarded them some commercial success over the years — particularly with their acclaimed 1989 album Mystery Roadand the follow up Fly Me Courageous.

The band has experienced something of a resurgence in the last several years, thanks to a multi-generational following as well as some higher profile artists covering their songs. Songwriter and band leader Kevn Kinney formed the band in Atlanta in 1985, and continues to push the group ahead with a consistent output of new music. The band is prepping a new album for 2019, but is set to start the year off with a pair of shows at the Tybee Post Theater on Jan. 11 and 12
