  • Shawn Featured on "PBS NewsHour," Performs "Diamond in the Rough," "Change Is on the Way"

    Shawn is the subject of a feature profile on PBS NewsHour. She spoke with the show's Art Beat correspondent Jeffrey Brown, sharing some stories from her new memoir, Diamond in the Rough, and offers solo acoustic performances of two songs off her new album, All Fall Down, released earlier this month on Nonesuch Records: the title track, which she co-wrote with John Leventhal, and "Change Is on the Way," which she co-wrote with Patty Griffin. The interview will air on NewsHour at a later date; before then, you can watch it above and watch the performances below.

    Diamond in the Rough "tells the story of a small-town girl from the wide open prairies whose passion for music took her on the road and into the recording studio," says Brown, "making her way from church choirs to Texas honky tonks and the folk music circuit around the country." USA Today gives the book three-and-a-half stars out of four, saying Colvin "emerges as a gifted conversational writer with a wicked and unabashedly goofy sense of humor."
