Description

    Old Yellow Moon, is a new collaborative album from Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell. The 12-track duets album features four songs written by Crowell as well as interpretations of songs such as Hank DeVito's 'Hanging Up My Heart', Roger Miller's 'Invitation to the Blues', and Allen Reynolds' 'Dreaming My Dreams', among others. Produced by Brian Ahern (Johnny Cash, George Jones, Roy Orbison, a number of Emmylou's classic early albums and Rodney's 1978 debut), Old Yellow Moon is the first official collaboration from the duo since Crowell joined Harris' Hot Band as guitarist and harmony singer in 1975. In addition to Harris and Crowell, the album features world-renowned musicians including Stuart Duncan, Vince Gill, and Bill Payne, as well as members of the original Hot Band. Harris says of the collaboration, "I first heard Rodney on a demo tape in 1974 and knew immediately from his voice and lyrics he had the right stuff. We met soon after, becoming band-mates in the Hot Band and starting a friendship that has continued and grown over the years. I always hoped we would someday do this record, and now I can finally cross it off my bucket list!" Crowell adds, "The record's overall tone calls to mind that Southern California blend of country music and rock and roll pioneered by Linda Ronstadt, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Gram Parsons and, of course, Emmylou and The Hot Band."
