NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country Music Hall of Fame member Emmylou Harris is ready to release a new album.
"Hard Bargain" will be released April 26 and Harris is celebrating with shows in Austin, Texas, at South by Southwest and in New York and Los Angeles.
The new album includes 11 originals by the 12-time Grammy winner with two covers of songs by Ron Sexsmith and album producer Jay Joyce. Two of the songs look back at her time with friends Kate McGarrigle ("Darlin' Kate) and Gram Parsons ("The Road").
A deluxe version will include a DVD with six performances plus interviews. Fans who preorder now through the record label website will receive an exclusive manuscript lyric sheet of "The Road," some of which Harris will autograph.
