Drivin N Cryin are a rock 'n' roll institution. From their days as MTV-approved radio stars to their rebirth as DIY icons of the American underground, they've spent three and a half decades building a legacy grounded in sharp songwriting, southern stomp, and loud, life affirming shows. Trends have come and gone. Bandmates have done the same. But Drivin N Cryin continue to hit the stage night after night, guitars in hand, amplifiers on full blast, delivering the soundtrack to a self-made rock & roll saga that's ever-unfolding.

What Are People Saying About Live The Love Beautiful?

Live the Love Beautiful shows why it’s important not just for artists to continue making music, but also for fans to hear what is said and sung. Drivin N Cryin now have a depth that, while different from their early work, is still connected to it.  Steven Ovadia - 'Drivin N Cryin Grows Up without Going Away' - No Depression

Live the Love Beautiful is as close to a flawless album as you can expect. The production is crisp where it needs to be and a little loose where it wants to be. Tasjan found a way to revitalize or maybe reinvigorate a band that many had pigeonholed as that band we sang along to in college. This is a moment where they not only shrug that label aside but plant the flag firmly for what the future hopefully holds in store for them and us as listeners. Did I see myself listening to Drivin N Cryin thirty years down the road? I am not sure, but what I am sure of is I am beyond thrilled that they are still around, still vital and still willing to rock and roll.  Jason Davidson - 'REVIEW: Drivin N Cryin’ “Live The Love Beautiful” Is Timeless Must-Have' - Americana Highways

The first album of new material the veteran rock-punk-folk group has released in a decade, Live the Love Beautiful is a testament to the vision of its leader, singer and songwriter Kevn Kinney. Recorded mostly in Nashville with producer Aaron Lee Tasjan, it’s also a reminder that a pop sensibility doesn’t have to obscure the serious intentions of a songwriter who has taken a hard look at American society. Live the Love Beautiful, which features contributions from Nashville musicians including Elizabeth Cook, The McCrary Sisters and Jimmy Matt Rowland, never flags over its 44 minutes — it’s Drivin N Cryin’s best album to date.  Lisa Mac - 'Drivin N Cryin’s New Nashville-Recorded Album Mixes Classic Rock With Politics' - Nashville Scene
