Emmylou Harris released a new record today: “All I Intended to Be”. I thought a great way to celebrate might be to point to several folks who have caught my ear and my heart. The videos on YouTube have been disabled for embedding, so here she is singing “Midnight Train to Georgia” with the Indigo Girls and some other folks.
A good follow up is the Indigo Girls’ latest, “LIttle Perennials.”
In my recent roamings, I found Justin McRoberts, who covers one of my favorite songs — Patty Griffin’s “When It Don’t Come Easy” — on his new project, “Deconstruction.”
Tift Merritt is a North Carolinian and someone with a new record of her own, “Another Country.” Here is the video for the song, “Broken.”
Jackson Browne has released the second volume of his solo acoustic recordings. Here is “Alive in a World.”
Thanks for listening.
