Biography

Possessing one of the most ethereally beautiful voices in country music, if not popular music as a whole, Emmylou Harris was a singer-songwriter whose lovely interpretations of country and pop-rock material made her one of the most respected figures on the music scene. She began her career as a protégé and muse of Gram Parsons, who found in Harris the perfect voice for his vision of a hybrid country-rock sound. His 1973 death haunted Harris for the rest of her career, but also provided her with some of her most moving original songs, including "Boulder to Birmingham" and the 1985 concept album The Ballad of Sally Rose. But Harris also blossomed into her own artist, which saw chart-topping albums in the 1970s and celebrated ventures into traditional country in the 1980s. Her music found little purchase in the 1990s country scene, so Harris re-invented herself as an independent performer, free of genre allegiance, with the gorgeous Wrecking Ball (1995). In its wake, she became one of country and alternative music's most respected figures, lending decades of artistic talent and credibility to a wide variety of projects, including the massively successful O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack. Harris' four-decade career, filled with artistic and commercial high points, was a gold standard for musicians of all genres to study and emulate for their own efforts.
