A Grammy-winning artist will take the stage at St. Cecilia Music Center’s Acoustic Café Series.

Singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell will perform on Nov. 12 in the Royce Auditorium at the music center, 24 Ransom Ave. NE in Grand Rapids.

“We are thrilled to welcome Rodney Crowell to St. Cecilia Music Center,” said St. Cecilia Music Center’s Executive and Artistic Director Cathy Holbrook. “It’s so exciting to have traveling artists and live audiences back in the building. This evening of music will be very memorable.”

Known as the founding father of the Americana music genre, Crowell released 18 albums, including his latest, “Rodney Crowell: Texas” in 2019 and R”odney Crowell Triage” in June 2021.

“Rodney Crowell: Texas” features artists such as Vince Gill, Ringo Starr, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, Lee Ann Womack, Steve Earle and other musicians.

“Rodney Crowell Triage” was written during the recent political, climate and economic upheaval, which resulted in a series of songs based on healing, love and solution.

He has 15 No. 1 hits, including six of his own and dozens with other artists, including Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Keith Urban, Bob Seger, Etta James and the Grateful Dead.

Crowell won two Grammy’s and six Americana Music Association Awards, as well as the association’s Lifetime Achievement for Songwriter Award. He was named a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer and five-time Americana honoree and award winner.

Guests must bring a photo ID and proof of vaccination, or a negative test, the night of the concert. Tickets are available at or by calling (616) 459-2224.
