Emmylou Harris has today’s almost forgotten track

Long before Barbara Mandrell boasted about being country before it was cool there was Emmylou Harris…part of her cool factor came from the fact that we first heard of her as a member of Gram Parsons’ band…the former Byrd and hang out guy with the Stones loved country and hired Emmylou to do the high harmonies…when he died she, basically, inherited his band and has never looked back…this cover of a Buck Owens’ hit was an early offering, and set the tone for the rest of her never compromising career

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then.

His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
