Yep Roc offers free Rodney Crowell EP!

From the Yep Roc newsletter, which I highly suggest you sign up for:

Rodney Crowell is nominated in the Best Contemporary Folk / Americana Album category for his album Sex & Gasoline!

Now Grammy-recognized over the span of three decades, Rodney adds another milestone to an already illustrious career with this nomination for his critically acclaimed album Sex & Gasoline. Crowell won the 1989 Grammy Award for Best Country Song for his hit single 'After All This Time' from his legendary album Diamonds & Dirt.

During the course of his career, Rodney has written songs for some of music's most notable artists (Emmylou Harris, Bob Seger), collaborated with Johnny Cash, produced breakthrough albums (Roseanne Cash) and charted five No. 1 hits of his own on the Billboard charts.

A decidedly political record that tackles the objectivity of sex and overt greed that has been driving our culture, Sex & Gasoline serves as a wake-up call for a country on the brink of change. Sex & Gasoline was produced by sought-after artist and producer Joe Henry. Its title track peaked at No. 1 on the Americana Music Chart and is still currently in the Top 5, where it has remained for the past several months.

The album was released through a partnership between Work Song Inc. and Yep Roc Records. This is the first nomination for Work Song and the fourth for Yep Roc.

Rodney will be performing songs from Sex & Gasoline at the famed Lincoln Center in New York City on January 23.

AND, to celebrate, we are offering fans a free EP featuring a bonus track from Sex & Gasoline and songs from Rodney's recent appearances on WXPN's Free at Noon and NPR's Mountainstage.
