Amanda Shires was a big part of a Newport Folk Festival highlight last year, when Dolly Parton made a surprise appearance with The Highwomen. Although this year's festival isn't happening, you'll get to experience some of the Newport magic this weekend on FUV — including that set — during Newport Folk Revival Radio Weekend.

But the year before The Highwoman made their live debut at Newport, Shires released her impressive solo album, To The Sunset, and also stopped by Studio A. So for a "Throwback Thursday" FUV Live, we're going to look back to that 2018 session today.

Listen for live songs from Amanda Shires throughout the day on FUV, and check out the whole interview and performance in the FUV Live Vault.
