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. A fine job by all concerned, including the stellar players." Vanity Fair calls it "a beautiful collection of duets" from "one of the most storied collaborations in country music."Read more|Journal Topics:Artist News VideoEmmylou Harrishttp://www.nonesuch.com/journal/listen-emmylou-harris-rodney-crowell-wnyc-leonard-lopate-show-2015-05-14May 14, 2015|0 comments
