Driving Home

front cover of Driving Home album

© 1993 Rounder Records

This was Cheryl's first album on Philo/Rounder. This album was heavily promoted by Philo, a welcome change from the lack of support that Capitol had given Circles & Arrows. There were (at least) three singles released from this album: "Almost" for Adult Comtemporary Radio, "Silver Lining" for Country Radio, and "75 Septembers" for general radio.

This album was taken into space. Here is a quote from Cheryl:
The coolest thing that has happened in terms of amazing career moments was receiving in the mail a copy of my" Driving Home" CD, signed by Jay Buckey, a space shuttle astronaut, with an official NASA "Certificate Of Authenticity" stating that that CD was flown aboard the United States Space Shuttle Columbia, April 17 to May 3 1998. The CD and certificate are framed and hanging above my guitars.
