Born in Houston in 1950, Rodney Crowell has released twenty albums in four decades, with five consecutive number-one hits, and has also worked widely as a songwriter and a producer. His compositions, including “Til I Gain Control Again,” “I Ain’t Livin’ Long Like This,” “Song For The Life” and “Ashes By Now” have been widely and successfully covered by legendary singers. But he led the way as a recording artist, achieving a dazzling run of radio hits in the 1980s, followed by a series of more personal albums in the 2000s that secured his place as much more than a chart-topper. His honors include two Grammys (one in 1990 for Best Country Song for the song "After All This Time" and one in 2014 Best Americana Album for his album Old Yellow Moon), an ASCAP lifetime achievement award, and membership in the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He played guitar and sang for three years in Emmylou Harris' Hot Band.
