Songfacts®:

  • Vestal is a songwriter from Florida. Originally from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, he has always been fond of the nostalgic outdoor movie experience, known as the drive-in theater. Drive-Ins used to be very popular, but many have been torn down and replaced with shopping centers. He thought that fans would be interested in purchasing a song souvenir of their favorite drive-in, and recorded 65 versions customized to different theaters. >>
