Emmylou Harris And Rodney Crowell: Staying Low



Almost 40 years after their first collaboration,Emmylou Harris and former bandmate Rodney Crowell are back with a new album of duets. Old Yellow Moon includes Crowell originals as well as revivals of songs by Roger MillerPatti Scialfa andKris Kristofferson.

“The whole spirit of this record was just two people singing together,” Harris says. “That was the most important thing.”

“Technology allows you to produce and manipulate,” Crowell adds. “You can manipulate sound and you can manufacture recordings, but you cannot manufacture a performance.”

The duo spoke with NPR’s Scott Simon and performed a song from Old Yellow Moon in the studio.
