    Video: Emmylou Harris on PBS's "Tavis Smiley"

    Emmylou Harris and her band performed songs from her forthcoming album, Hard Bargain, at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles last night, with singer/songwriter Ryan Adams offering a surprise guest opening set. There's more music-making in store on Tuesday, the album's release day, when Harris and the band perform at Bowery Ballroom in New York City, with another surprise special guest in store.

    Earlier this week, Harris appeared on the Tavis Smiley show on PBS to discuss the new album, her childhood, her career in music, the dog rescue that is near and dear to her heart, and much more. You can now watch the show below, via pbs.org.

    "She's been called the 'elder statesperson for country music,'" says the show, "and 12-time Grammy Award winner Emmylou Harris is admired as much for her straightforward songwriting as for her expressive singing. Forty years into her career, she's still doing both with her 21st studio release, Hard Bargain."

    To pre-orders Hard Bargain with a manuscript lyric sheet of "The Road," the song Harris wrote about her friendship with Gram Parsons, a number of which will be signed by Harris, head to the Nonesuch Store now.

    Sam Amidon's new album, The Following Mountain, will be released May 26, 2017, on Nonesuch.

The Following Mountain was created with producer Leo Abrahams and frequent Amidon collaborator Shahzad Ismaily, with a rare guest appearance by drummer Milford Graves. Nonesuch Store pre-orders include an exclusive autographed print and an instant download of the album track "Juma Mountain." You can watch a lyric video for the song here.
