Watch: Shawn Colvin Performs on "eTown"Shawn Colvin, whose new album, All Fall Down, was released last week, as was her memoir, Diamond in the Rough, is featured on the latest episode of eTown, the weekly music radio show hosted by Nick Forster, along with Mary Chapin Carpenter. The two performers stopped at the Boulder Theater while on a duo tour of the United States earlier this year to record the show before a live audience.
Colvin performs "Change Is on the Way," a song from the new album that she co-wrote with Patty Griffin, and career favorites "Polaroids" and "Diamond in the Rough." Watch those three performances from the show in the videos below. She is also joined by Carpenter for a performance of the classic tune "That's the Way Love Goes," and the two close the show with a take on The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" in tribute to the late Levon Helm.
This is Shawn Colvin's seventh eTown appearance. To find eTown on a radio station near you or listen to the complete show online, head to etown.org.
Colvin celebrated the release of All Fall Down with a show at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles last night with Buddy Miller, who produced the album, and bassist Viktor Krauss, who performs on it. She resumes her US tour on the East Coast next week with a performance at the Strand Theater in Rockland, Maine. For additional tour details, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.
