– Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell return to Austin City Limits to share the ACL stage for the first time. The pair celebrate their shared history, their recent collaborative album "Old Yellow Moon" on Nov. 2.
Friends for 40 years, their recent collaboration was chosen as album of the year at this year's Americana Music Awards and the pair was honored as duo of the year.
"It's great to be back at the world's greatest and longest-running music show," said Harris. The performance includes the two longtime kindred spirits joining their voices on Crowell originals as well as revivals of songs by Roger Miller, Matraca Berg and Kris Kristofferson.
Harris opened with some of her earlier Gram Parsons-era hits (Wheels), and the duo also covers more recent era for Harris' Red Dirt Girl and Crowell's Rock of My Soul. Special guest Shawn Colvin joins in the finale for Crowell's Stars On the Water.
The setlist is:
Pancho & Lefty
Red Dirt Girl
Rock Of My Soul
Invitation to the Blues
Back When We Were Beautiful
Chase the Feeling
Dreaming My Dreams
Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight
Old Yellow Moon
Stars on the Water
