Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell has worked with a laundry list of fellow music legends, from Guy Clark and Johnny Cash to Vince Gill and Emmylou Harris. After reading the 1995 book, The Liar's Club, Rodney realized he had another dream collaborator in author and college professor Mary Karr. He name-checked the New York Times best-selling author in "Earthbound," a song on his 2003 album, Fate's Right Hand. Almost nine years later, the two finally did connect, with the result being one of the most unforgettable Americana albums of this year, KIN: Songs by Mary Karr & Rodney Crowell.

"I called out to (Mary) in the darkness because she was a bona fide poet I knew could write songs," says Rodney, "and despite her professor's pedigree, she'd ridden a bike in a mosquito truck's fog."

Watch the exclusive video premiere below of Rodney performing a standout track from KIN called "Hungry for Home," which will make your mouth water and your mind wander.
