Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell have been friends for 40 years, going back to the '70s, when Rodney was a member of Emmylou's legendary Hot Band and wrote some of Emmylou's biggest hits. Two years ago they reunited for the duo album, Old Yellow Moon, which earned them a Grammy Award. Now they're back with The Travelin' Kind, which features a couple of Rodney originals, a couple of covers (including a Lucinda Williams tune), and, more significantly, a bunch of co-writes. They talked about their relationship, then performed the entire album for a rapt audience of WFUV members at City Winery and climaxed with a classic Crowell composition as a bonus.
