EMMYLOU HARRIS & RODNEY CROWELL embarked on a series of special tour dates in March in celebration of Harris and Crowell’s new collaborative album, Old Yellow Moon, which was released February 26 on Nonesuch Records. The album is also available on iTunes and nonesuch.com.
Harris is a 12-time Grammy winner and Billboard Century Award recipient whose contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years. She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists’ recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008. Old Yellow Moon is the follow up to her acclaimed 2011 release, Hard Bargain, which debuted in the top 20 on the Billboard 200 chart. Associated Press called it “gorgeous” and said Harris’ “silvery soprano is in fine form,” while USA Today called it “exquisite…her unmistakable soprano, at once grainy and ethereal, still wraps itself around a lyric with an angel’s delicate warmth.”
Crowell is a multi-Grammy winner whose songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash, Norah Jones, Etta James, and The Grateful Dead, among others. His 1988 breakthrough Diamonds and Dirt generated five No. 1 singles and a Grammy for the song “After All This Time.” His critically acclaimed works The Houston Kid, Fate’s Right Hand, The Outsider, and Sex and Gasoline were followed by the 2010 release of his memoir, Chinaberry Sidewalks. In June 2012 Crowell released KIN: Songs By Mary Karr & Rodney Crowell. The album made its debut at No. 1 on the Americana and Country Rock album chart and spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Americana album chart. His honors also include an ASCAP Lifetime Achievement Award and membership in the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
