Hey Susan!  

the song you are looking is by turner nichols, on the self titled album from 1993, and its called moonlight drive-in. Story goes, they wrote that song while on tour, as the bus drove down Interstate 81 in Abingdon, va, they looked over and saw the back of the screen, and the name of the drive in  in big neon lights. My father owned this drive in for several decades, and I grew up"under the stars". Hope this helps, thanks for bringing back memories  :)

The song "Moonlight Drive-In" was by a duo called Turner-Nichols. I know, because I was the guy in the video.

Yes you are right.  The name of the song is Moonlight Drive In.  And it is a real place in Abingdon, VA,only its called Moonlite Drive-In. I have been there many times.  The artist of the song is Tim Nichols/Zack Turner.  Hope this helps.  I love this song also

I remember this song and like you can't find it anywhere. When I was younger I listened to this song on repeat.. It was on a purple cassette tape of theirs and for sure it was called 'Moonlight Drive-In.' I wish I could find it!!

The song was written about the Moonlight Drive In, located in Abingdon VA. The singer is Billy Dean. Sorry it took 3 years to answer!

Just want you all to know that the song Moon Light Drive-in was wrote by Zack Turner and Tim Nichols and recorded by the too. I should know I am Zacks stepdad. How this will clear it up. Zack is now making a new CD with some great songs on it.
