Chinaberry Sidewalks

Rodney Crowell


In a young and uproarious memoir, singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell finds the nice, the undesirable, and the gruesome of a dirt-poor southeast Texas boyhood.
 
The simply baby of a hard-drinking father and a holy-roller mom, acclaimed musician Rodney Crowell was once no stranger to bombast. yet regardless of a house lifestyles regularly threatening to burst into violence, Rodney fiercely enjoyed his mom and idolized his blustering father, a annoyed musician who took him to work out Hank Williams, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny funds practice. Set in Fifties Houston, a frontier-rough city with icehouses promoting beer via the gallon on payday, pest infestations correct out of a horror movie, and the type of freedom mischievous little ones dream of, Chinaberry Sidewalks is Rodney's tribute to his mom and dad and his striking youth.  filled with the main pleasurable form of nostalgia, it's hardly ever recognizable as a celeb memoir.  quite, it is a tale of coming-of-age at a selected time, position, and station, crafted in addition to the proper song.
