The 12-track duets Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell album is scheduled for a February 26, 2013 release date on Nonesuch Records, and has been simmering on the back burner of Harris’ mind for years.
“I first heard Rodney on a demo tape in 1974 and knew immediately from his voice and lyrics he had the right stuff,“ Harris says. “We met soon after, becoming band-mates in the Hot Band and starting a friendship that has continued and grown over the years. I always hoped we would someday do this record, and now I can finally cross it off my bucket list!”
Crowell penned four of the tracks, with the rest of the record being filled out by covers of Roger Miller and Hank Devito, among others. Vince Gill, Stuart Duncan and Billy Payne will be featured, as well as other members of the original Hot Band.
Crowell compares the records sound to the Southern California country rock of Linda Ronstadt, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Gram Parsons, and Harris and The Hot Band. The record also reunites Harris with producer Brian Ahern, whom she last worked with on 2008’s All I Intended to Be.
