It was announced on Friday, Nov. 10 that GRAMMY® Award-winning troubadour Rodney Crowell has received a GRAMMY® Award nomination for Best Americana Album. The recognition is for Crowell's new record, The Chicago Sessions, produced by Jeff Tweedy and engineered by Tom Schick, which has received immense worldwide acclaim.
"I'm filled with gratitude that The Chicago Sessions has been recognized by the Recording Academy," Crowell said. "I owe a huge debt of thanks to New West Records and to Jeff Tweedy, Tom Schick and the superb musicians without whom the songs surely wouldn't speak for themselves. And to my daughter, Chelsea, who first visualized the collaborative possibilities."
Crowell is the songwriter's songwriter and an icon among giants. A native Texan, Crowell's work has resulted in fifteen number one hits. Over the course of his career, Crowell has gracefully blended his own mainstream success as an artist with a prolific catalog of songs cut by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Keith Urban and more, making him a master among his peers.
The 2024 (66th) GRAMMY® Awards will take place Sunday, Feb. 4, at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California and will air live at 8 p.m. ET on the CBS Television Network and will stream on Paramount+.
