A tradition-rich singer and songwriter, Emmylou Harris nonetheless defies convention at every turn. She builds bridges between country, folk, gospel, rock, and bluegrass, honoring and celebrating the past while retaining a sensibility that is progressive and experimental. From her harmony vocals on key 1970s sessions with Gram Parsons and Bob Dylan to her more than forty years of recording distinctive solo albums, Harris has remained one of country music’s most vital and satisfying artists. This book complements the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibition Emmylou Harris: Songbird’s Flight, and contains commentary from Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member Rodney Crowell and infamous “Road Mangler” Phil Kaufman, along with rare photos not included in the exhibit.
