(Winner of the 2013 Best Americana Album Grammy Award) A shoo-in for NPR's Heavy Rotation: 5 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing, this album pairs one of alt/country's greatest songwriters with one of its most luminous stars. Crowell contributes four songs to the mix, and the duo also performs tunes by Kris Kristofferson ("Chase the Feeling"), Roger Miller ("Invitation to the Blues"), and Patty Scialfa ("Spanish Dancer").
"Their new album of duets sounds classic in every sense of musical accomplishment: from their gorgeous singing and inspiring studio performances to their excellent choice of material. It hearkens back to classic recordings like Harris' Elite Hotel and Crowell's Diamonds and Dirt, and brings the best out of the two veterans."—NPR station XPN2
"There are legendary country singers, and then there's Emmylou: a breathtaking pinnacle of poise and elegance, and an artist who continues to innovate with every new release."—Time Out New York
"[Crowell] is a romantic shriek inducer with lean rocking, wildly evolved songs of sensitivity that are equal parts rogue and poetic perfection."—Huffington Post
