iTunes Review

Rodney Crowell had been a well-known country songwriter since the '70s, but tracks like the husband-and-wife duet "It's Such a Small World" suggest that he had been saving his best tunes for this solo breakthrough. Though the song, about an old pair rekindling their connection, only lasts a few minutes, Crowell is able to craft characters that feel full and complex. The deep cuts are just as sweet: "I Know You’re Married" is joyful bubblegum and "Above and Beyond" brings Buck Owens into the late '80s.

What, you've never heard of 'Diamond's and Dirt'?

Man, you've been missing out on possibly and certainly arguably the BEST DARN country CD (album) ever recorded and definitely up in the lofty ranks of Hank Williams and Willie Nelson!!! If you are a lover of country music, YOU NEED THIS CD!!!! I believe it (D & D) won 7 Grammy's, so don't just take my word for it. This was country when country was VERY COOL!!!! I only wish Rodney would consider re-issuing his CD "Street Language" which had some beautiful songs on it and was mightily underrated in the mire of those 80's nouveau singles. Rodney Crowell is a master of his craft and I challenge you to find anything he's worked on that isn't at least VERY, VERY GOOD!!!

after all this time

When Rodney Crowell first gained widespread recognition as a leader of the new traditionalist movement of the mid-'80s, he was, in fact, a singer, songwriter, and producer with roots and ambitions extending far beyond the movement's perimeter. Born to a musical family on August 7, 1950 in Houston, Texas, Crowell formed his first band, the Arbitrators, while in high school, and in 1972 moved to Nashville to become a professional musician. There, he struck up friendships with singer/songwriters Townes...
