Rodney Crowell plays Bob Dylan – Happy Birthday Mr. Crowell!

Rodney Crowell (born August 7, 1950) is an American musician, known primarily for his work as a singer and songwriter in country music. Crowell has had five number one singles on Hot Country Songs, all from his 1988 album Diamonds & Dirt. He has also written songs and produced for other artists. He was influenced by songwriters Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt. Crowell played guitar and sang for three years in Emmylou Harris’ “Hot Band”.

He is one of my favourite artists, no matter what genre we’re talking about. I saw him with Emmylou Harris a few weeks ago, one of the best concerts I’ve seen this year! He doesn’t get the recognition he deserves, he is one of the finest songwriters around today.

From his album, The Outsider (2005) with Emmylou, Shelter from the storm:

August 7: Happy 66th Birthday Rodney Crowell

OLD post … You’re being redirected to a newer version……

“… When I was 12 years old, or however old I was when Bringing It All Back Home came out, I’d just skip back and forth endlessly between ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’ and ‘It’s Alright, Ma’ and ‘Mr. Tambourine Man,’ and now my Dylan roots are showing big time.”

Classic concert: Emmylou Harris and The Hot Band at the BBC 1977

EmmylouHarris

Emmylou Harris was 30 at that time, and she is here accompanied by The Hot Band: Albert Lee, Emory Gordy, John Ware, Glen D Hardin, Rodney Crowell, Hank Devito. Superb band! They run through what was to become a greatest hit set, lovely rendition of well-known songs. The Highlights for me are, Making Believe and Luxury Liner.

Emmylou recorded some of her best albums with The Hot Band, one of the best backing bands in country history.

The concert was recorded for the Old Grey Whistle Test in 1977.
