Grammy Award-winner Rodney Crowell and New York Times Best Selling author Mary Karr most recent release KIN, Songs By Mary Karr And Rodney Crowell on Vanguard Records hit stores on June 5, 2012. Produced by Joe Henry, Kin marks the first collaboration between the two writers and is Karr’s entry into the world of music. Crowell shares the vocal duties on this album with Norah Jones, Vince Gill, Lucinda Williams, Lee Ann Womack, Rosanne Cash, Kris Kristofferson, & Emmylou Harris.
Long known as a poet among songwriters, Crowell is a masterful storyteller and hit generator. He charted five consecutive number one hits with his debut Diamonds and Dirt and has become one of the most critically acclaimed artists in country music. Crowell’s songs have been recorded by the likes of Johnny Cash and Rosanne Cash, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Norah Jones. He was recently inducted into the Songwriter Hall of Fame between Willie Nelson and Guy Clark. After reading Karr’s memoirs—Cherry and The Liar’s Club—which spent over a year on the New York Times Bestsellers list and allegedly kick-started the memoir craze—Crowell name-checked her in “Earthbound,” a track off his critically acclaimed album Fates’ Right Hand.
