Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell
has worked with a laundry list of fellow music legends, from Guy Clark
and Johnny Cash
to Vince Gill
and Emmylou Harris
. After reading the 1995 book, The Liar's Club
, Rodney realized he had another dream collaborator in author and college professor Mary Karr. He name-checked the New York Times best-selling author in "Earthbound," a song on his 2003 album, Fate's Right Hand
. Almost nine years later, the two finally did connect, with the result being one of the most unforgettable Americana albums
of this year, KIN: Songs by Mary Karr & Rodney Crowell
"I called out to (Mary) in the darkness because she was a bona fide poet I knew could write songs," says Rodney, "and despite her professor's pedigree, she'd ridden a bike in a mosquito truck's fog."
Watch the exclusive video premiere below of Rodney performing a standout track from KIN
called "Hungry for Home," which will make your mouth water and your mind wander.
