"We've always wanted to have Emmylou on our stage, and you add in legendary singer-songwriters Rodney Crowell and Richard Thompson and it's like the Super Bowl of Americana has come right here to the Triangle. Some of my favorite nights at DPAC are the shows that feature acoustic guitars and pure voices. With DPAC's clear sound and intimate seating, I can picture fans closing their eyes and feeling like they are in a living room in Nashville, a very special night with old Friends and great, great songs", said Bob Klaus, GM of DPAC.
Old Yellow Moon, the 12-track duets album, features four songs written by Crowell as well as interpretations of songs such as Hank DeVito's "Hanging Up My Heart," Roger Miller's "Invitation to the Blues," and Allen Reynolds' "Dreaming My Dreams," among others. Produced by Brian Ahern (Johnny Cash, George Jones, Roy Orbison), Old Yellow Moon is the first official collaboration from the duo since Crowell joined Harris' Hot Band as guitarist and harmony singer in 1975. In addition to Harris and Crowell, the album features world-renowned musicians including Stuart Duncan, Vince Gill, and Bill Payne, as well as other members of the original Hot Band.
