Book SynopsisFrom growing up in Texas, to living in his car, to landing his first publishing deal, to writing fifteen #1 songs, Word for Word is a lavishly illustrated look at the lyrics of an icon among songwriting giants. Emmylou Harris--who once employed Rodney Crowell as the guitarist, harmony singer, and arranger in her Hot Band--introduced many listeners to his finely-crafted songs, including "Til I Gain Control Again," "Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight," "I Ain't Living Long Like This," "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues," and "Ashes by Now." They all went on to be become hits for other performers, while Crowell went on to carve out a career as the first country singer to earn five #1 singles from one album. Rodney continued writing and recording classics, while other artists continued to take his songs to the top of the charts, including Bob Seger's recording of "Shame on the Moon," Tim McGraw's recording of "Please Remember Me," and Keith Urban's cover of "Making Memories of Us." In this disarmingly intimate look at Crowell's songs, he shares pages from his lyric notebooks, personal photographs, and scribbles that reveal the heart of one of this generation's finest songwriters.
