Rodney Crowell album out today

Grammy Award-winner Rodney Crowell and New York Times Best Selling author Mary Karr's album collaboration 'Kin' is in stores now.
Featuring an all-star crop of guests, it was produced by Joe Henry and marks the first pairing between these two celebrated storytellers. In support of this release, the KIN – Rodney Crowell and Mary Karr Tour, featuring special guest Steuart Smith (The Eagles) continues this month.
The one-of-a-kind show includes music from the album, poetry, readings and storytelling. Remaining tour dates are below.

Karr is an award-winning poet and best-selling memoirist. She is the recipient of numerous fellowships and awards, including a Guggenheim, a Radcliffe Bunting Fellowship, The Whiting Writer's Award, and a Pushcart Prize.

Long known as a poet among songwriters, Crowell is a masterful storyteller and hit generator. He was the first artist to chart five consecutive number one hits with his release Diamonds and Dirt. A Songwriters Hall Of Fame inductee, Crowell has penned songs recorded by Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash, Bob Seger, Grateful Dead, Norah Jones, Van Morrison, Etta James, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Band Of Horses and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band among others.
Last year, Crowell made his debut as a memoirist with the release of Chinaberry Sidewalks. The memoir received glowing reviews, where his storytelling and ways with the written word were compared to that of Mark Twain.
