Rodney Crowell puts his classics in acoustic setting for new album

Grammy-winning roots troubadour Rodney Crowell announces the July 13 release of his new album, Acoustic Classics, the debut entry from his newly-launched imprint, RC1. Exclusive pre-order bundles featuring the new cd and vinyl can be found on Crowell's website,

This acoustic presentation of tunes from his 40-plus-year career was done in an intimate setting. “With the help of some of my favorite musicians, I’ve made all acoustic instrument recordings of ten of my most recognizable songs. Also included is a couple more recently written that I want people to hear. There’s even a revised version of my most commercially successful song, "Shame on the Moon,” said Crowell. “All in good fun.”

Marking Crowell’s 19th solo effort and the first release from his new label, RC1, the project features songs originally made famous by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, The Oak Ridge Boys, Bob Seger, Tim McGraw and more.

Track listing:

1. “Earthbound”
2. “Leaving Louisiana In the Broad Daylight”
3. “Anything but Tame”
4. “Making Memories of Us”
5. “Lovin’ All Night”
6. “Shame on the Moon Redux”
7. “I Couldn’t Leave You if I Tried”
8. “She’s Crazy for Leaving”
9. “After All This Time”
10. “Tennessee Wedding”
11. “Ain’t Living Long Like This”
12. “Please Remember Me”
