Ridin’ Out The Storm. Rodney Crowell cover


Recommended Posts

This is one of my favorites from Rodney Crowell. Story of a man who has chosen his path, however difficult, based on principle and conviction. A good piece of writing in my book.

Guitar is a (lowly) Yamaha FG830. The fun-to-dollar ratio of this guitar exceeds anything I’ve seen lately. Pretty amazing for 300 bones.

Hope you enjoy the tune.

Crowell is one-hell-of-a-songwriter.  His phrasing and metaphors are excellent  Like John Prine, he has a very unique way of saying things and I think your rendition is also your own unique take on the song.   I really enjoyed it!........BTW, I've kind of been working on a similar message in one of my songs, but trust me, it's nowhere near the quality of this song......  Crowell is one of the best ever.

Thanks Kelly, I love that tune as well.  I read recently that the story comes from a personal experience of Crowell’s.  Not sure if it a story from his life or from someone close to him.  I need to do more research.

Excellent job! And, yes, it is great to see Crowell covered. He really is a craftsman.

I wonder, though.... Why not show us YOU singing the song? I know some folks like to show just their hands, but unless you're Tommy Emanuel or Billy Strings showing us your licks, I want to see you singing. That's a big part of what makes the performance of a song (especially a good one like you've done here) a human experience.

Yes, exactly!

Thanks for the notes, guys.  I gotta say that this is the first time I’ve ever had someone actually ask to see my mug.  🤪

I’ll correct that.  Thanks for the feedback.  Most of my other songs on Vimeo show the whole enchilada.
