Rodney Crowell to Perform at Music Box


Rodney Crowell has enjoyed a career that has lasted over four decades and included ACM Awards, Gammy Awards and a long list of hits and songwriting credits. The 67 year old Texas native will bring his show to the Music Box Supper Club in Cleveland on Saturday.

Crowell released his debut album, Ain’t Living Long Like This, in 1978, but it was his Diamonds & Dirt project ten years later that really thrust him into the country spotlight. The album produced five consecutive number one singles and earned him the Top New Male Vocalist award at the ACM’s in 1988, as well as a Grammy for Best Country Song (“After All This Time”) in 1990.

In addition to “After All This Time,” his five chart toppers include “She’s Crazy for Leaving,” “Above and Beyond,” “I Couldn’t Leave You if I Tried,” and a duet with Roseanne Cash on “It’s Such a Small World.”

Before his success in performing, Crowell was already established as a songwriter. He wrote “Shame on the Moon” which was recorded on the 1982 album The Distance by Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band.  The song spent four weeks at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 pop singles chart, topped the adult contemporary chart, and placed in the Top 15 of the country chart in early 1983. He continued success as a songwriter and reached the Top Ten in the country charts during the 1990’s-2000’s with “Song for the Life” by Alan Jackson, “Making Memories of Us” by Keith Urban, “Ashes By Now” by Lee Ann Womack, and “Please Remember Me” by Tim McGraw.

In 2014, he received his second Grammy Award in the Best Americana Album with Old Yellow Moon with Emmylou Harris. He released his 17th album, Close Ties, in 2017. The album, which includes collaborations with Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow, and John Paul White, reached the 28th spot on the Billboard country albums chart, and also claimed the 138th spot on the all-genre Billboard 200.

Rodney Crowell will be performing with special guest Jedd Hughes at the Music Box Supper Club in Cleveland on Saturday, April 14 at 8pm. Tickets are $28 Advance, $32 Day of Show and available on the Music Box website.
