Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris - Gold Watch And Chain

"This would have been my choice for all time favorite Linda Ronstadt performance on youtube (if not one of my all time youtube favorites of any artist). Like Emmylou Harris, the full register of her vocal powers come not so much in isolation, but in…"

Kasey Chambers - Runaway Train

"Was there, and what a nice reminder of how nice it was. Kasey writes great songs, she and her band rock good and hard, and her voice turns me inside out. Guess she's doing OK, but I can't understand why she isn't huge."

Emmylou Harris interview July 19, 2011

Russ,  Thanks for the heads up about her Champaign concert. My son goes to school there, so he grabbed me a ticket today. I'm also going to the Ryman on the 21st for her Grand Ole Opry 20th Anniversary concert. Two shows in seven days...sweet.
