The Houston Kid

On The Houston Kid, seminal alt-country innovator and peerless songwriter Rodney Crowell retreats inward for a stirring exploration of the roots of his raising -- and what a trip it is! The largely acoustic and unapologetically personal song cycle recounts the small pleasures of an impoverished childhood on "Telephone Road," reflects on loving times with a troubled twin brother on "Wandering Boy," and examines the first awakenings of an artistic sensibility on "I Walk the Line (revisited)," which features Crowell's former father-in-law Johnny Cash providing a forceful guest vocal. This is Crowell's finest sustained writing in years, and a grand return to the incisive, insightful breed of songwriting that first earned Crowell his status as one of country's most distinctive talents.
