About Rodney Crowell

Rodney Crowell has been doing this for awhile.  In fact, his career has been so long and varied that one might be better off specifying exactly which “this” is being referred to.  There’s the record making, which dates back to 1978, his commercial peak a decade later with Diamonds & Dirt (which yielded all five of his number-one country hits), and a grown songwriting sophistication and power in more recent years.  There’s the fiercely lyrical and personal songwriting, which has attracted the attention of everyone from Seger to Keith Urban.  Then there’s the autobiographical writing, which extends beyond the music world to a memoir, Chinaberry Sidewalks.
