I’m not a country music fan, but couple days ago, I got Emmylou’s (Harris) album “Wrecking Ball”. This is really a M A S T E R P I E C E.
(“…She delivers every song with great emotion that reaches deep in your soul and touches you greatly. Don't deny yourself from this one...” Amazon.com)

I'd say it's the "Masterpiece" that brought her to the attention of a new generation of listeners. Hooking up with Daniel Lanois, Neil Young and Steve Earle was a great idea. Even though Emmy actually lost her perfect voice about 15 years ago, she's adjusted well and hasn't slowed down a bit ~ always managing to stay on the cutting edge even when she's looking into the past. I should say I've been a big fan of hers since her Gram Parson days. If you want to hear something just as good or even better with the same Lanois sound, try "Spyboy" from '98. It's a live album with a couple of Wrecking Ball songs on it.

It has been brougt to my attention. Thanks!

Hey all,
Wanted to introduce you to another great singer-songwriter, well at least, I think she's great. Holly Williams, yes Hank's grandaughter, has an album out called "The Ones We Never Knew", that's worth picking up. I got to listen to it through my internship at Universal, it's worth picking up. Check out these streams.
Cheerz,
