“It Ain’t Over Yet,” a vocal collaboration with Rodney's ex-wife Rosanne Cash and John Paul White, is the first time Crowell and Cash have appeared on record together since Cash’s Interiors album in 1990. Rolling Stone Country premiered the video for “It Ain’t Over Yet,” which also features legendary harmonica player Mickey Raphael. They state, “The evocative lyrics call to mind the two-tone, punked-out cover image from Cash’s 1985 LP Rhythm and Romance, which preceded Crowell’s mainstream country breakthrough of five consecutive Number One hits from 1988’s Diamonds & Dirt and the subsequent collapse of the couple’s marriage.”
The new album, Close Ties, will be available on compact disc, LP, digital download and streaming, and is available for pre-order now.
