Cry Of Love was an American rock band, formed in 1989 in Raleigh, North Carolina. The group released their debut album in 1993 (Brother), produced by John Custer before hitting the road for the next 17 months. After completing their '93-'94 touring cycle frontman Kelly Holland quit the band, saying he could no longer handle the rigors of the road. They scored a number-one hit on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart with "Peace Pipe" in 1993.

Freed and Kearns formed a band named Big Hat that also includes Keith Gattis - vocals/guitar; Peter Stroud - guitars; Fred Eltringham - drums; Ike Stubblefield - keyboards. These days, Freed and Kearns (along with Freed's multi-talented wife, Jen, and Stroud, are part of Sheryl Crow's touring band).
