One of this country's greatest singers and songwriters celebrates her 65th birthday today - Emmylou Harris.
I wanted to feature some of her work today on the Oracle. Emmylou has shared so many stages in her life that the task became pretty much impossible. I love everything that she has done from the early days with Gram Parsons all the way to Wrecking Ball produced by Daniel Lanois, to Red Dirt Girl, to her collaboration with Mark Knopfler on All the Roadrunning, and the 2011 Hard Bargain.
First, a taste of Hard Bargain with an interview, followed by an earlier live performance with Emmylou backed up by her band Spyboy.
