    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.

    Olivia Chaney's new album, Shelter, is out now on Nonesuch. Produced by Thomas Bartlett, the album is eight original songs plus Chaney's takes on songs by Purcell and the Everly Brothers. She has also released a video for the track "House on a Hill," filmed at the rustic, 18th-century cottage in the hills of the North Yorkshire Moors where she made the record. Watch it here. The Observer cites Chaney's "dazzling vocals" and calls Shelter "an elegant, luminous album." Uncut calls it "transcendent refuge from the storm." The Daily Mirror says it's "a triumph."
