Usually viewed in a country context, Emmylou Harris is in fact one of the most distinctive and visionary voices in all of popular music. Mentored by Gram Parsons, she rose to stardom as his transcendent vocal partner on the "Cosmic American Music" gracing his landmark solo albums GP (1972) and Grievous Angel (1973). Harris' own ever-adventurous solo career launched shortly after Parsons' untimely death with 1975's Pieces Of The Sky. One of the most traditional-country and acoustic-leaning albums of her career, 1979's Blue Kentucky Girl won Emmylou that year's Best Country Female Vocal Grammy and features the #1 single "Beneath Still Waters." Also boasts famous guest spots from the likes of Tanya Tucker, Sharon & Cheryl White, Don Everly, Linda Rondstadt and Dolly Parton.
