Kevn Kinney plays the Saloon at N.C. Music Factory tonight (2/24/12)

KEVN KINNEY At the height of the ’90s country-rock revival there were those who genuflected at the Drivin’ n Cryin’ altar and liked to lump them in with the Uncle Tupelos and Whiskeytowns, but the fit was never snug — too jam-y and Southern rock by half to these ears. Kinney began moonlighting the solo folkie thing (maybe even in search of the missing “i” from his first name), teaming with fellow Georgians (and others) ranging from R.E.M.’s Peter Buck to the Allman Brothers. But on his latest, A Good Country Mile, he reunites with the Golden Palominos’ Anton Fier to feature new Kinney originals, some Drivin’ n Cryin’ favorites and some covers in an old-fashioned electric guitar barn burner. $10. The Saloon at N.C. Music Factory.
