Also in June, Kevn Kinney will be serving up some new Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ music. The group plans to deliver 4 EPs over the next year on their own New! Records label. The first EP called Songs from the Laundromat will favor DnC’s rockin’ side, sez Kinney. Nice to see these old faves still drivin’ n’ cryin’.
