Personal Quote:

There are those things that I've cobbled slowly, one couplet at a time, and labored over, and then poof! one day there it is, and it takes on life. Truman Capote said great books aren't written, they're rewritten. See more »


A lifelong Hank Williams fan and aficionado, Rodney became the obvious choice to coach British actor Tom Hiddleston for his role as Williams in the biopic I Saw the Light (2015). Hiddleston actually moved into Crowell's Nashville home to undergo a crash course in singing and guitar playing country style. See more »
