Emmylou Harris & Lucinda Williams Join Rosanne Cash at Country Music Hall

Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Emmylou HarrisNashville, TN -- The lives and careers of Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, and Lucinda Williams have intersected for decades.

Cash recruited her fellow Southern roots-music queens for the second of her three concerts as the 2015 artist-in-residence at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. There were tears, simply because the principals were so happy to share the evening; there were stories, some that had never been told, and will never be told again; there was mutual praise a-plenty, as each testified as to how much inspiration she had derived from the others’ work; and, most of all, there was music, with all three women reaching deep inside themselves to find the core creative sparks that have made them such enduring American artists.
