Emmylou Harris And Rodney Crowell Will Tour Australia - 2015


Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell will tour Australia together across June and July.

The legendary Emmylou Harris first rose to fame as a female singer on Gram Parsons ‘GP’ album in 1973. She was also working with Parsons on his classic ‘Grievous Angel’ album at the time of his death later that year.

Harris has won 13 Grammy Awards. She has worked on records for Roy Orbison, Neil Young, Linda Ronstadt and Bob Dylan.

Harris recorded one of Rodney Crowell’s earliest songs ‘Till I Gain Control Again’ on her 1975 album ‘Elite Hotel’.
