I am a fan of country music and Emmylou Harris is right at the top of my all time favorite country artists. Emmylou, 12 time Grammy award winner, recently toured with another of my favorites Rodney Crowell. Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell are both legends in the world of country and folk music who have frequently worked together since the mid-70s. This page is about Emmylou and her music and her recent tour.
