On January 10, 2015 an extraordinary collection of music stars came together for Washington, DC’s concert event of the year, The Life & Songs Of Emmylou Harris: An All- Star Concert Celebration honored one of the most influential musicians of our time. The concert event taping took place at DAR Constitution Hall, and featured performances by Vince Gill, Holly Williams, Buddy Miller, Rodney Crowell, Patty Griffin, Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson, Lee Ann Womack, Martina McBride, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Sheryl Crow, and many more. Harris took the stage to perform with a number of special guests throughout the night. Grammy Award-winners Don Was and Buddy Miller served as music directors that led an all-star band backing the performers.
A 13-time Grammy winner –including a 2014 Grammy for “Best Americana Album” with Rodney Crowell—and Billboard Century Award recipient, Emmylou Harris’ contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years. She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists’ recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.
The project will be available as a standalone album as well as offered packaged along with a DVD or Blu-Ray disc as well.
