‘Drivin’ My Life Away’ by Eddie Rabbit – Classic Hit or Miss

“Drivin’ My Life Away” is a the title of a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Eddie Rabbitt. It was released in June 1980 as the first single from his album Horizon. It reached number one on the Hot Country Singles in 1980, and peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song, a look into the life of the roadies and the long periods of time they spend away from home, was featured on the soundtrack of the 1980 movie Roadie starring Meat Loaf and Art Carney.Although many of Rabbitt’s successful songs were country-pop material, “Drivin’ My Life Away” began his peak popularity as a crossover artist. The song peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, and set the stage for his biggest career hit: “I Love a Rainy Night,” which reached the top on the country, Hot 100 and adult contemporary charts in early 1981. Two more crossover hits – “Step by Step” and “You and I” (the latter a duet with Crystal Gayle) – followed in 1981 and 1982.
