Crowell flies with new video

Thursday, March 30, 2023 – With Rodney Crowell set to release "The Chicago Sessions' on May 5 via New West, he released the video for the song "Loving You Is the Only Way to Fly" today.

Crowell said, "'Loving You Is the Only Way to Fly' is something I wrote a while back with Sarah Buxton and Jedd Hughes, both of whom appear on the record. Jedd and I were sitting around with guitars in our hands when he started playing the basic chord pattern. I'm pretty sure the title sprang from something Ben Vaughn said to me back when we were writing 'When Losers Rule The World,' but I haven't had the nerve to ask. Ben, if you read this, I wish you could've been there. If you feel left out, you can have my portion of the proceeds, and I'll take credit for putting Jeff Tweedy in charge of overseeing a pretty dang decent recording of the song. Much love, Rodney."

Crowell previously released the video for the album's first single, "Everything at Once," which features footage recorded at The Loft during recording.

CD reviews for Rodney Crowell

CD review - The Chicago Sessions Having Jeff Tweedy (a fan) produce Rodney Crowell's "The Chicago Sessions," was a smart move. He doesn't over embellish these 10 fine songs, which don't need any gussying up. It finds Crowell expressing gratitude, beginning with the upbeat opener, "Lucky," and continuing with one about the power of love, which posits that - no matter what life may bring – being loved will get you through it all. Crowell sings these songs, most of which he wrote, quite well as always. ...
CD review - Texas Rodney Crowell is a rare breed of a country songwriter. Yes, he knows how to write traditional country songs; it's just he's also a deep thinker, which requires extra effort on the part of the listener to appreciate them fully. "Texas" is just as varied as his everything-is-bigger home state. It's also a star-studded affair, which even includes none other than Ringo Starr. "Brown & Root, Brown & Root" includes an historical introduction from ...
CD review - Christmas Everywhere Rodney Crowell's "Christmas Everywhere" is a (mostly) melancholy collection of songs, with Christmas time as its setting. It's a strong set of carefully worded tunes, set to widely varying musical backings. All 12 tracks are originals, so if you're seeking out 'Rodney Crowell performs holiday favorites,' this is certainly not for you. However, if you're a little tired of all the trappings associated with the winter season, you'll find an empathetic soul in Crowell. ...
