– Rodney Crowell enlisted a slew of friends, including Rosanne Cash with John Leventhal & The Milk Carton Kids, Ry Cooder, Elvis Costello, Ronnie Dunn, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Joe Henry, John Hiatt, Taj Mahal, Jeff Tweedy, Keith Urban and Lucinda Williams, for "Songs From Quarantine."
The digital compilation of rarities is available now for only two weeks exclusively on Bandcamp.
This collection features fan-favorite songs in their raw form, performed by the artists who wrote and/or recorded them.
Proceeds from this limited edition 13-song download will benefit the work of non-profit Music Health Alliance (MHA) and its continued work to provide free healthcare advocacy and support to the music community nationwide, including mental health and COVID-19 resources in addition to access to healthcare, medicines, diagnostic tests and more.
Crowell, an MHA board member, said: "The good folks at Music Health Alliance work tirelessly on behalf of our nationwide music community. Their selfless contributions have had a profound effect on the lives of countless musician's families. This little homemade compilation is the least we could do to show our deep appreciation for everything they do."
The track list is:
Ry Cooder – "Baby Started Wearing Her Mask"
Elvis Costello – "Maud Gone Wrong"
Emmylou Harris – "Gold"
Jeff Tweedy – "Even I Can See" (Demo)
