I’m not much of a book trailer fan, but the two videos I’ve seen advertising singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell’s new memoir, Chinaberry Sidewalks, are different. Something about him really shines through.
Crowell’s on tour right now, reading from the book and doing acoustic songs in a one-man show. And since many of his sentences are a real mouthful, I’m not surprised to hear him vow in the audio-book segment to write “three-word sentences” from now on!
In this second video, Texas memoirist Mary Karr interviews him: “Rodney Crowell!” she says. “You’ve settled down and are raising a book!” Across the aisle on this site are three full-length songs that he’s performing on the book tour.
