Personalities | Rodney Crowell | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, songwriter, b. 1950)

A member of The Hot Band from 1975–77 as Emmylou Harris’s duet partner, Crowell wrote contemporary classics for her, including ‘’Til I Gain Control Again’ and ‘I Ain’t Living Long Like This’. After a modest start in chart terms with Warner Bros. in the late 1970s, his second Columbia album, Diamonds And Dirt (1988), saw his solo career go into orbit. Despite missing the US pop chart, the album included an all-time record of five chart topping-singles, the first a duet with his then-wife, Rosanne Cash.
