Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell ‘The Traveling Kind’ – Album Review

emmylou-harris-rodney-crowell-the-traveling-kind-450x409n

Let’s just be honest with each other for a second. If there were a class on the subject, Country Music 101 would include a chapter on Emmylou Harris. She’s required reading. In addition to her own storied career, which includes 12 Grammy awards, 3 CMAs and an induction to the Country Music Hall of Fame, her clout sprawls contagiously across multiple platforms and genres. Her collaboration list sounds better than most people’s CD collection, featuring (but is certainly not limited to) Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams, John Denver, Mark Knopfler and Bright Eyes. Let’s also not forget about all the love she was given recently by First Aid Kit.

Jeremy Dylan is sitting behind the mic and is once again is about to ask the question of the week: “Kristian Bush, what is your favorite album?” Today it’s the turn of the co-leader of Sugarland who is the guest on Episode 53  of Dylan’s podcast “My Favorite Album.” And Bush has come in to tell us his answer. “There’s a lot but because it’s the most influential in my work, it would be The Joshua Tree by U2.”

Talking about one’s favorite album makes for good barroom conversation but Dylan has turned it into an art form, attracting artists like Bush, Emma Swift, Jim Lauderdale and Robin Hitchcock for a lively and spirited half hour-plus conversation. The social media director, concert promoter and film director of Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts has even devoted separate single episodes to each of the four sides of the Beatles White Album.

“That’s a new classic right there.”

If Jim Lauderdale paused to say the words, it was because he was in awe coming out of Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell’s performance of “The Traveling Kind,” the title track of their new album which they sang for listeners of the Buddy and Jim Show on SiriusXM Outlaw Country.

“Every once in a while you catch something that is timeless,” Crowell reflected. “I felt like we tapped into some form of timelessness. If we’re lucky enough to leave something that lasts after us, what more could you ask for?”
