Country music from a fan's point of view since 2008

Classic Rewind: Rodney Crowell – ‘After All This Time’

This was a #1 hit in 1989.  Diamonds and Dirt, the album it is taken from, made history upon its release when all 5 singles released to radio went to #1 on the country charts.  ‘After All The Time’ was 4th in that historic run of chart-toppers.

    Rodney was everywhere in 1989 with that song. I seem to remember him sitting down next to Johnny Carson and playing it. Everything Rodney put out off of that album shot to No. 1–even “Above and Beyond” an old song that not even Buck Owens had been able to take to the top!

    Great song. A couple months ago, I went to a wonderful Crowell show and he sang this song. He was one heck of a guy too. With all of his accomplishments, I’m sad that most people that I’ve talked to about the show, outside of bloggers, have never heard of him. And these are self identified country music fans I’m talking about.

    Good song. I didn’t know when I bought “Diamonds and Dirt” about 3 years ago that Crowell had five #1’s (if wiki is correct) with that album in 1988-89.
