Watch Another New Video from Tommy Emmanuel and Rodney Crowell

Tommy Emmanuel has released another video from his Accomplice One album, which is released 19 January 2018. It’s the Australian virtuoso guitarist’s collaboration album with some of the finest singers and writers in country and roots music.

The new track is Looking Forward To The Past, and features Grammy-Award winning Rodney Crowell.

Speaking about the track, Tommy explains: “When Rodney asked me to play on his new album, I suggested we trade and he sing on my album, it was a deal! When I went to his studio to play on his track, he sang me this song and I came back the next day and we recorded Looking Forward To The Past. Rodney works the same way I like to: sitting down and playing as if it’s in front of an audience. We capture a performance, and we don’t manufacture it.”


Rodney Crowell also has high praise of his experience of working with Tommy. “Playing guitar and singing with Tommy Emmanuel is like catching a ride with an F-15 fighter jet pilot. Gravity has no effect on Tommy; it’s as if he literally flies a guitar.”

It’s a great collaboration, that’s for sure. Tommy Emmanuel’s Accomplice One also features Jason Isbell, Mark Knopfler, Jerry Douglas, Amanda Shires, Ricky Skaggs, David Grisman and more, and is reviewed in the next issue of Country Music magazine, in stores on 10 January 2018.
