Rodney Crowell Live at Grimey's

  • Grimey's New and Preloved Music 1060 East Trinity Lane Nashville, TN, 37216 United States (map)

Grammy winner Rodney Crowell has a new album out on August 16th featuring an all-star cast. The album is called TEXAS and it features collaborations with Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Ronnie Dunn, Billy F Gibbons, Randy Rogers, Vince Gill, Lee Ann Womack, Steve Earle, Ringo Starr and more. the 11 tracks on TEXAS represent not just a fresh batch of weathered poetry from one of Americana's finest craftsmen, but also an iconic singer-songwriter letting loose with his friends.

"For the last few years, I'd been writing Texas-centric songs and revisiting some of my tunes from as far back as the mid-seventies," Crowell explains. "Last year, I started referring to the collection of songs as the TEXAS album."

Crowell had it in mind to record one of the album's tracks with Texas native Steve Earle, he says, and had also intended to work with fellow Houstonian and ZZ Top front man Billy F Gibbons for years. But after finally setting dates to get those projects done, the list of guest performers grew ... and grew. Twangy two steppers stand alongside hard-driving blues rockers and dusty cowboy ballads, sharing time with windblown prairie gems, quirky spoken-word compositions and historically-charged singalongs. Each one is defined by Crowell's famously sharp, vivid storytelling and authentic vernacular, with collaborators like Rogers counting themselves lucky to be along for the ride.

Rodney Crowell will join us for an in-store performance at Grimey's on Tuesday, September 17th, at 6PM to celebrate. Starting now you can purchase a copy of TEXAS on vinyl ($15.99) or CD ($9.99) at the shop to secure your wristband guaranteeing you get in for the in-store and a spot in the post-performance signing line.
