out of stock

a tremendously strong songwriter whose personal recollection and  literary sophistication inhabits a profound  musical atmosphere.

this is at once his most intimate record and his most accessible, the product of years of understanding the ways songs can enter - and be entered by - life. “It’s a loose concept album, you could say,” Crowell says. “And the concept is related to how you tell stories about yourself. Having a few years ago written a memoir, my sensibilities toward narrative - especially trying to find a common thread in different pieces of writing - had become a part of my songwriting process.” this is a roots record, in the sense that Crowell himself has deep roots that stretch back into the alternative country scene of the early seventies.
