Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell visited Rolling Stone to perform two songs from their new album, The Traveling Kind: the title track and "The Weight of the World." Watch both here. "If only Hollywood sequels were this good," exclaims Mother Jones of their follow-up to Old Yellow Moon. "Harris' still-beautiful voice has acquired a darker, slightly rougher texture that adds authority, while the weathered grace of Crowell's singing makes him a perfect match.
