In his song "Nashville 1972," Rodney Crowell looks back on his early days in the music business, meeting heroes and legends such as Willie Nelson, Tom T. Hall, and Harland Howard, and occasionally making a fool of himself, as men in their early twenties are likely to do. That song closes out Crowell's 2017 album Close Ties, and it's a fitting footnote to an album by an artist who, in his own way, is as much of a hero as any of the artists he cites in the song 45 years later.
Courtesy of the artist. Americana has had a banner few years, to put it mildly, and the roots of its current incarnation can be traced back to Rodney Crowell. Crowell references her again in the album's closing track, "Nashville 1972," a star-studded roll call of the musical luminaries (Steve Earle and David Olney, among others) he encountered upon moving to Nashville that year. If "Nashville 1972" is a paean to the good old days, "It Ain't Over Yet" is Crowell's history - musical and otherwise - reconciled in just over five minutes.
Rodney Crowell's Close Ties, his anticipated new album, officially hits stores on March 31. Crowell just recently released a music video for stellar new song "It Ain't Over Ye. That tune features John Paul White, Sheryl Crow and Crowell's ex-wife, Rosanne Cash - their first collaboration since 1988. His 15th studio album, Close Ties promises 10 of Crowell's most autobiographical songs yet. If "It Ain't Over Yet" is any indication, we're in for a heck of an album. Crowell says the record runs the gamut of his life experiences.
The Multi-Grammy Award winning troubadour Rodney Crowell is set to release Close Ties on March 31st via New West Records. The 10-song set is his first album in over three years and follows The Traveling Kind, his acclaimed collection of duets with longtime collaborator Emmylou Harris. Co-produced by Jordan Lehning and Kim Buie, the album features a duet with Sheryl Crow on the haunting I’m Tied To Ya, and It Ain’t Over Yet, a vocal collaboration with his ex-wife Rosanne Cash and John Paul White.
Rodney Crowell’s new album, Close Ties, demonstrates his strengths as a songwriter and illustrates how he has learned to balance personal recollection, literary sophistication, and his profound musical reach. It’s a loose concept album, you could say, Crowell says. And the concept is related to how you tell stories about yourself
