Rodney Crowell has announced a collaborative effort with New York Times Best Selling author Mary Karr for KIN – Rodney Crowell and Mary Karr Tour, featuring special guest Steuart Smith.

The tour, which begins on May 31 in Chicago, treats the audiences to an evening of music, poetry, readings and storytelling.

The tour supports the June 5 release of KIN, Songs by Mary Karr and Rodney Crowell (Vanguard Records). The album, produced by Joe Henry, is a combination of two storytellers from different worlds, seamlessly blending verse, melody and poetry.

Karr is an award-winning poet and best selling memoirist who has taught at Harvard and Syracuse University, where she still holds a chair in literature. She is the recipient of numerous fellowships and awards, including a Guggenheim, a Radcliffe Bunting Fellowship, The Whiting Writer’s Award, and a Pushcart Prize.

Last year, Crowell released his memoir Chinaberry Sidewalks (Knopf/Random House).
