It's got a similar chord progression and vocal phrasing, but so do many other songs.

I thought this was Ryan Bingham. It would be nice to hear some of his stuff on RP.

His Indian song is one of the better songs you will hear about the plight of the American Indian.{#Yes}

I knew Kevn personally when I was in school at UGA in Athens... about 13 years ago... he's a great guy. I wish him the best.

In case any of you are new to Kevn and his music, he's the lead singer of Drivin' N' Cryin', an Atlanta band that made it big in the late 80's / early 90's with songs like "Fly Me Courageous", "Straight To Hell", "The Innocent",  and "Honeysuckle Blue". Their music is great, southern rock with a little folk thrown in for good measure.

Kevn's solo stuff, however, is more Dylan than the Allmans...very folky overall, with some great acoustic guitar work. His first two discs, "MacDougal Blues" and "Down Out Law", were produced by Peter Buck of REM, who also played guitar and mandolin on some of the tracks. Kevn's third disc, "The Flower and the Knife" (from which this song is taken), was produced by Warren Haynes of Govt Mule and Allman Brothers fame, and Haynes is featured prominently on the disc (including on this song, on which he plays the slide guitar). This disc also features guest appearances by John Popper of Blues Traveler, Edwin McCain, Derek Trucks, Matt Abts of Govt Mule, Allen Woody of the Allmans, and Ken Block from Sister Hazel. The disc features a few reworks of Drivin' N' Cryin' songs, some new stuff, and a couple of Dylan covers ("The Ballad of Hollis Brown" and "I Shall Be Released").

Since this disc, Kevn has had two or three other releases. His newer CDs are more hit-and-miss to me, but I absolutely love his first three releases. While they can be hard to find at times, as I think all three are out-of-print, used copies are fairly inexpensive on Ebay, Amazon, etc.
 
Ooo - thanks for all that information. {#Music} I loved Drivin' N' Cryin' - and once I'd finally gotten past "Fly Me Courageous," I learned to love the rest of that cassette (yes, I know...)  This just makes me want to buy all the DNC CDs and also Kevn's work.

I feel enlightened - I LOVE RadioParadise!!! {#Sunny}

Mary Lou Lord has a song where she references Kevn Kinney by singing "What's the skinny Kevn Kinney? Look that song up (called ND something) for some good alt country references.

MacDougal Blues is an absolutely incredible album. I was never big into folk, but I'm willing to bet it stands up as just about the best folk album of the 80's and maybe beyond. As the guy below said, the others are quite good, but MacDougal Blues is just about flawless.
