Emmylou Harris: Boulder to Birmingham

Tomorrow is the 35th Anniversary of the death of Gram Parsons. He died September 19, 1973 in Joshua Tree, CA.

I’m not going to go into a detailed post about the crazy events surrounding his death. That can be found here.

I’m also not going to launch into a treatise on how much I love Gram’s music, or his concept of Cosmic American Music, or how much he’s influenced some of the artists of today.

Today, I’m simply going to offer a song written by Gram’s friend and duet partner Emmylou Harris (with Bill Danoff) after Gram’s death. This is the sound of pure, simple, beautiful, heartache.
