At each stage of Carrie Rodriguez's careeras a fiddler, singer, and songwriterthe Austin, Texas, native has learned the importance of letting go. That was certainly true when it came to recording her fifth solo album, Give Me All You Got, her first of largely original tunes in several years. "In the making of Love and Circumstance in 2008, I chose to sing other people's songs," Rodriguez explains. "I needed to take a step back from songwriting and think about the kinds of songs that feel important to sing. Doing that inspired me to write again."
On Give Me All You Got, she says, "I'm laying out some extreme emotional highs and lows, which feels good. Take 'Brooklyn' [co-written with guitarist Luke Jacobs]. It's very autobiographical, and I remember thinking, would I really want to share this? I decided, of course, why hold this back? It's something that a lot of people can relate tothe acceptance of failure in a relationship, learning from it, and moving forward. 'Brooklyn' is also a song about taking a pause in order to really experience what you are feeling, something I find increasingly difficult in this modern era of constant communication and stimulation."
