Emmylou Harris - Stumble into Grace
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Emmylou Harris - Stumble into GraceLike fine acoustic instruments, Harris’s voice keeps improving with age. Now 56, the silver-haired singer recently hit her prime with the Grammy-winning Red Dirt Girl, her best-selling album in 20 years. Harris’ latest is equally strong, featuring collaborations with old friends Linda Ronstadt and the McGarrigle Sisters and new ones like Canada’s Jane Siberry. Standout tracks include the Andean-flavored “Little Bird” and “Strong Hand (Just One Miracle),” a stunning tribute to country matriarch June Carter Cash.
