Earle joined several of those lucky writers, along with a long list of collaborators, friends and disciples at the event, billed The Life & Songs of Emmylou Harris: An All-Star Concert Celebration. Held at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., the show boasted a set-list spanning four decades of Harris' iconic catalog. Lucinda Williams sang "Hickory Wind," a 1974 Gram Parsons hit later recorded by Harris, who toured in Parsons' band and recorded several albums with the late singer. Another frequent duet partner, Rodney Crowell sang "You're Still on My Mind" - a song he first heard Harris sing when she was playing coffee shops in Washington back in the early Seventies. Vince Gill and Sheryl Crow teamed for "Two More Bottles of Wine," while Shawn Colvin, Patty Griffin and Conor Oberst harmonized on "The Pearl." All were backed by a house band of country greats: Buddy Miller, Don Was, Sam Bush, Audley Freed, Fred Eltringham, Matt Rollings, Greg Leisz and Sara Watkins. Other artists on the bill included Lee Ann Womack, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Chris Coleman, Chris Hillman, Iron & Wine, Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson, Daniel Lanois, Martina McBride, the Milk Carton Kids, Herb Pedersen, Shovels & Rope, Mavis Staples, John Starling, Trampled by Turtles, Holly Williams and Emmylou Harris herself, who joined friends on several tunes. Watch her sing "Boulder to Birmingham" with the entire cast below. This once-in-a-lifetime show was recorded for a live album and DVD, which will be released November 11th via Rounder Records. Also available via Blu-Ray and several combo packs, The Life & Songs of Emmylou Harris: An All-Star Concert Celebration was created and produced by Blackbird Presents. Written by Rounder Records
