Emmylou Harris first heard Rodney Crowell over 40 years ago, and his song “Bluebird Wine” appeared as the opening track of her first solo album in 1975 Pieces of the Sky and again on their collaborative album Old Yellow Moon in 2013. Their second collaboration, The Travelling Kind, came out earlier this year. Harris is a 13-time Grammy Award winner who has recorded with Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton, John Denver, John Prince, Steve Earle, and more. Among her earliest successes was her collaboration with legendary country-rock musician Gram Parsons, before his tragic death in 1973. Harris has released over 26 albums and sold over 5.5 million records in the United States.
Crowell is a two-time Grammy Award winner, including one shared with Harris for Old Yellow Moon and another for his song “After All This Time.” He was discovered as a songwriter in 1972 by country star Jerry Reed, who would go on to record several of his songs. His work has also been recorded by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, Bob Seger, and more. He has released 13 albums, including Diamonds & Dirt, which produced five number 1 hit songs. For more information, click here.
