Life Is Messy is the title of the seventh studio album released by American country music artist Rodney Crowell, released in 1992 by Columbia Records. It peaked at number 30 on the Top Country Albums chart. The songs, “Lovin’ All Night”, “What Kind of Love”, “It’s Not for Me to Judge”, and “Let’s Make Trouble” were released as singles. This album was seen by many as a return to form after his previous album, Keys to the Highway was not characteristic of Crowell’s style. Many famous musicians contributed instruments or vocals to this album such as Linda Ronstadt, Don Henley, Booker T. Jones and Steve Winwood.
“The Answer Is Yes” was covered by Michelle Wright on her 1996 album For Me It’s You, while “Lovin’ All Night” was covered by Patty Loveless on her 2003 album On Your Way Home.
The album was reissued in 2000 under the Lucky Dog label with a different logo and the border cropped around the picture.
