Rodney Crowell

Host Bob Edwards talks with country music star Rodney Crowell. Crowell was just 11-years-old when he got his first gig, playing drums alongside his father in a honkey-tonk. He went on to write songs and produce albums for some of country music's top artists, including Willie Nelson and Emmy Lou Harris. The Texan's latest album is The Houston Kid. Crowell says it's his autobiography set to music.
