Emmylou, Rodney, Richard, oh my!

Well, this is a delightful bill if ever we've seen one. Richard Thompson opening for Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell on April 4? Yes, please! From the Cobb Energy Centre website:
Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell had been meaning to get around to recording together for a long time--about three decades. The duo (who are multiple Grammy award winners in their own rights) finally made the time, and will soon release their first official collaboration since Crowell played in Harris' Hot Band in 1975, Old Yellow Moon. "I first heard Rodney on a demo tape in 1974 and knew immediately from his voice and lyrics he had the right stuff," Harris says. "We met soon after, becoming bandmates in the Hot Band and starting a friendship that has continued and grown over the years. I always hoped we would someday do this record, and now I can finally cross it off my bucket list!"
