Four decades into a career spanning country, pop and folk, Emmylou Harris’s music remains as heartfelt, visionary and as vital as her early recordings. Harris performs with acclaimed songwriter Rodney Crowell, in celebration of “Old Yellow Moon,” their new duet release that brims with lush harmonies and practically celebrates heartbreak in Crowell originals as well as revivals of songs by Roger Miller, Kris Kristofferson and more.
Emmylou Harris' contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years and includes 12 Grammy Awards and a Billboard Century Award. She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists’ recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.
Rodney Crowell is a multi-Grammy-award winner whose songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Norah Jones, Etta James and Grateful Dead among others. His 1988 breakthrough Diamonds and Dirt, generated five #1 singles and a Grammy Award for the song “After All This Time.” In 2012, Crowell released KIN: Songs By Mary Karr and Rodney Crowell, which made its debut at #1 on the Americana and Country Rock album chart. His honors also include an ASCAP Lifetime Achievement Award and membership in the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
