1 Hr 30 Min


Rodney Crowell started his career in his native Houston, playing drums in his father’s honky-tonk band at age eleven. Significant moments in his musical growth included meeting major songwriting influence Guy Clark in Nashville and joining Emmylou Harris’s heralded Hot Band in California.

His hit songs include “’Til I Gain Control Again” (Emmylou Harris, Crystal Gayle), “I Ain’t Livin’ Long Like This” (Waylon Jennings), “Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight” (Oak Ridge Boys), Rosanne Cash’s “I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me” and “It’s Such a Small World,” “Shame on the Moon” (Bob Seger), “Ashes by Now” (Lee Ann Womack), “Please Remember Me” (Tim McGraw), “Song for the Life” (Alan Jackson), and “Making Memories of Us” (Keith Urban). As a recording artist, Crowell hit his stride when his 1988 album Diamonds and Dirt yielded five #1 country singles, including “After All This Time,” which won Crowell a Grammy for Best Country Song.

During this program, Crowell performs and is interviewed by the Museum’s Michael Gray. Presented in support of the exhibit Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ’70s.

Stream on-demand on the Museum’s YouTube channel, Facebook page, and website starting with the premiere on Tuesday, May 10, at 7:00 p.m. central.
