DVD Preview: Scarred But Smarter – Life N Times of Drivin’ N’ Cryin’

Scarred But Smarter: Life N Times of Drivin’ n’ Cryin’ DVD
They never broke through to a mainstream rock ‘n’ roll audience, but Southern rockers Drivin’ n’ Cryin’ have made a hell of a lot of great music since forming in Atlanta, Georgia in 1986. Led by singer, songwriter, and guitarist Kevn Kinney, the band has released over a dozen studio and live albums and EPs over the past 30 years – critically acclaimed discs like Fly Me Courageous and Wrapped In Sky – earning the band a well-deserved reputation as an entertaining, electrifying live band. Projected for great things in the wake of R.E.M.’s enormous success in the 1990s, Dn’C nevertheless has remained a cult band known and appreciated only by a relative few fans.

On September 23, 2016 MVD Entertainment will release Scarred But Smarter - Life N Times of Drivin’ n’ Cryin’, a documentary film that delves into the history of the legendary Southern rock band, on DVD and digitally. Director Eric Von Haessler spent several years making the film, trying to discover why the otherwise engaging band hadn’t been more successful. The film uses album tracks and videos, never-before-seen performances, archival video, and interviews with Dn’C fans like R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, Darius Rucker, Jason Isbell, David Lowery, Ed Roland, Michelle Malone, and Ty Pennington as well as band leader Kevn Kinney to tell the story of this amazing, influential band.

The MVD Entertainment release of Scarred But Smarter on DVD includes extras like new music videos and full-length live performances by the band. If you’re not already hip to Drivin’ n’ Cryin’, you owe it to yourself to check out Scarred But Smarter as an introduction to the best band that you’ve never heard.
