The volunteers of the Troubadour Concert Series and Highbridge Spring Water present an evening with Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, on stage together at the Lexington Opera House on Sunday, October 18 at 7:30 pm.
“Emmylou Harris is a thirteen time Grammy Award winning American singer and songwriter originally from Birmingham, Alabama known for her musical career as well as her activism.
Rodney Crowell’s commercial success in the late ’80s was huge, and in 2003 he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. He honed his craft with country greats Jerry Reed and Guy Clark. Emmylou Harris and these days — 40 years later — Crowell is a legend whose songs have been recorded by Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash and the Oak Ridge Boys, among others.
Harris and Crowell have worked together frequently over the past 40-odd years, most recently coming together in 2012 to acclaimed full-length Old Yellow Moon, which went on to net the duo a Grammy Award. Crowell spent much of the 1970s and ’80s as part of Harris’ backing outfit The Hot Band, with Harris having recorded Crowell-composed songs numbering well into the double digit.”
