    Emmylou Harris Enters US Charts at No. 22

    Congratulations to Emmylou Harris, who, the same week she entered the Top 40 on the UK pop charts, with her latest release, All I Intended to Be, debuted at No. 22 on the US pop charts, a career high. The new album simultaneously reached No. 4 on this week's country charts.

    Emmylou delighted her New York fans last night at The Town Hall
    with the first of two performances at the venue. She returns tonight for an encore performance before heading out to Long Island tomorrow night for the Opening Night Gala performance the The Planting Fields Arboretum's summer season of concerts in Oyster Bay, New York. For more information, visit fotapresents.org.

    Last week, Emmylou was in New York City as well to celebrate the release of the new record with an intimate interview and performance at New York's flagship Barnes & Noble store in Union Square. The special event, held before a capacity crowd, was part of the store's One on One series, hosted by Katherine Lanpher. Emmylou was the first musician to be featured in the series, which has otherwise focused on authors. You can watch video of the entire event at bn.com.

    The Wall Street Journal rock and pop music critic Jim Fusilli recently went to Nashville to visit Emmylou at her home and join her for a walk through the museum at the Country Music Hall of Fame, into which she was recently inducted. In an article that examines the breadth of her 35-year career, Fusilli describes Emmylou's appeal this way:

    Ms. Harris delivers her songs with Mother Carter's passion and unadorned directness; knows that Monroe's musical adventurism trumps the homogeneous sound of contemporary country; and in the early 1970s, with Gram Parsons, studied the Louvins' vocal harmonies.

    Rhiannon Giddens's five-song EP Factory Girl, first released on vinyl and digitally in late 2015, is now available on CD for the first time. The EP, which is up for Grammy Awards for Best American Roots Performance and Best Folk Album, is culled from the T Bone Burnett–produced sessions that yielded Giddens's acclaimed solo debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn. "It's a clutch of tunes that work together like the cards in a winning poker hand," the New York Times says of Factory Girl. "Her accompaniment … points to an ageless gold standard for American roots music." "Deftly curated, gorgeously sung," says NPR, "this EP is America." Her new album, Freedom Highway, is due February 24.

    The Staves, who kick off a four-week tour of North America next week, release the double A side "Tired As Fuck," a previously unreleased tune, and "Train Tracks," a re-mastered version of a bonus track from their 2015 album If I Was. The former was "written in the midst of a relationship breaking down," says the trio. "Lamenting the lack of some sort of guidance, but also accepting and resigning yourself to fact that you have to soldier on. Keep going. There is no helping hand. 'Train Tracks' is the beginning of something new and how confusing and difficult that can be when you're really just as clueless as anyone! The two tracks bookend each other in that respect." You can watch a video for "Tired As Fuck" here.
