My review of veteran Nashville singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell's album Close Ties.
Singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell's next album, Close Ties, will be released by New West Records on March 31. It takes an autobiographical tone, featuring a duet with ex-wife Rosanne Cash and ex-Civil Wars member John Paul White on "It Ain't Over Yet."
My reflections on the life and career of Texas singer-songwriter Guy Clark, who died May 17 after a long illness.
The announcement that British actor Tom Hiddleston would be starring in the Hank Williams Senior biopic I Saw The Light, about to begin shooting in Louisiana, brought considerable surprise as well as controversy. It was announced Hiddleston would be doing some of his own singing in the film, which would also utilize Hank's original recordings. Naturally, I have some opinions of my own.
