Rodney Crowell is set to release his latest album, Acoustic Classics, July 13. The project is the first on his newly-launched imprint, RC1.
Crowell has released six albums in the last ten years, and this new project is a re-distilled, acoustic presentation of 12 masterfully-crafted tunes from his 40-plus-year career in an intimate setting. The collection features songs originally made famous by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, The Oak Ridge Boys, Bob Seger, Tim McGraw and more, including “Leaving Louisiana In the Broad Daylight,” “Ain’t Living Long Like This,” and “Please Remember Me.”
“With the help of some of my favorite musicians, I’ve made all acoustic instrument recordings of ten of my most recognizable songs. Also included is a couple more recently written that I want people to hear. There’s even a revised version of my most commercially successful song, “Shame on the Moon,” said Crowell. “All in good fun.”
Exclusive pre-order bundles featuring the new cd and vinyl can be found on Crowell’s website, rodneycrowell.com.
Crowell will host his inaugural Adventures In Song songwriting camp on July 16-20 at Asilomar Conference Grounds in Carmel, California. The event, described as “four days and nights of songwriting bliss,” will feature Crowell doling out songwriting expertise alongside a star-studded cast which includes Lisa Loeb, Joe Henry, Allen Shamblin, Brennen Leigh, Don Peake and special guests Bernie Taupin and Benmont Tench.
