News & Reviews

  • Emmylou Harris's Nonesuch Records debut album, Red Dirt Girl, which was first released more than twenty years ago, in September 2000, is now available on limited-edition, translucent red vinyl. Harris wrote all but one of the tracks on Red Dirt Girl, which won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. It was produced by Malcolm Burn, who also performs on the album, along with Buddy Miller, Daryl Johnson, and Ethan Johns. Dave Matthews sings a duet with Harris, and Bruce Springsteen, Patti Scialfa, and Patty Griffin also contribute vocals.

  • Country Music Hall of Fame member Emmylou Harris reunited with Rodney Crowell to perform "Love Hurts" for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s BIG NIGHT (At the Museum) benefit event, which aired last night. For the performance in the museum, which you can watch here, Harris plays the 1961 Martin New Yorker acoustic guitar of Boudleaux and Felice Bryant, who wrote the song. Harris famously recorded "Love Hurts" with the late Gram Parsons.
