Multi-Grammy Award winning troubadour Rodney Crowell’s “It Ain’t Over Yet” was awarded “Best Song of the Year” at the Americana Music Association’s 2017 Honors & Awards last night. The vocal collaboration between Crowell, his ex-wife Rosanne Cash, and John Paul White is featured on his critically acclaimed album Close Ties which was released March 31st of this year via New West Records. Rolling Stone Country premiered the Reid Long-directed video for the song, which also features legendary harmonica player Mickey Raphael and can be seen HERE. The Nashville Scene called the song “a folky shuffle about not quitting even if you feel like you have nothing left to offer. The elegantly crafted song takes the form of a conversation...and it’s one gem among many on Crowell’s album Close Ties.” Rolling Stone stated “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.” 

Crowell, who was unable to attend the event, offers “I’m very happy that ‘It Ain’t Over Yet’ was recognized last night and saddened that I wasn’t there to express my gratitude to the Americana Music Association.”
