Singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell makes his first appearance on the Monkey Stage. From the time he arrived in Nashville in the early '70s, Crowell has remained one of country music's most important songwriters. His work with Emmylou Harris' Hot Band — and, later, alongside Vince Gill and Tony Brown in The Cherry Bombs — is the stuff of legend.
The collaborations led to Crowell's first solo album, 1978's Ain't Living Long Like This, but mainstream success wouldn't arrive until a decade later, with Diamonds and Dirt. In 2001, Crowell released the autobiographical Houston Kid, which was widely hailed as a career highlight — a tall order for a man who'd already been in the business for three decades and seen his songs covered by countless country superstars.
Crowell's last album, Kin, is a collaboration with poet, novelist and fellow Texan Mary Karr. His latest album, Old Yellow Moon, is a collaboration with EmmyLou Harris that both say was a long time in the making and continues to receive critical and popular praise.
