Rodney Crowell has been called Nashville's "golden boy" and "the songwriter's songwriter." As such, his work is often associated with country music, but much of what he has written over the years could be categorized as rock, folk, swing or bluegrass.
Crowell made a name for himself as a guitarist and singer in Emmylou Harris's Hot Band during the late 1970s, but that was only the beginning. Since that time, he's released 13 albums, most recently 2008's Sex and Gasoline.
Crowell also recently put his gift for words to paper, and released the memoir Chinaberry Sidewalks. It's gritty and full of Crowell's childhood experiences. Crowell tells some of those stories and performs two songs live in this edition of World Cafe. (link)
