Rodney Crowell on Country Music

Monday, March 14, 2011

Grammy Award-winning country music singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell discusses his memoir, Chinaberry Sidewalks. In the book, he recounts his hardscrabble upbringing in rural Texas with his hard-drinking father and long-suffering mother, his marriage to—and eventual divorce from—Roseanne Cash, and his long-running love affair with country music.

I'm a fan of Rodney's . . . thanks to hearing him on the legendary KPIG over the Internet. Don't know if he's ever gotten airplay on a NY market station . . . that's a shame.
