Emmylou Harris : C'est La Vie

"There are two kinds of men in this world. Those in love with Emmylou Harris and those who have not met Emmylou Harris..."
-Willie Nelson

In January of 1977, Emmylou Harris released her fourth album, Luxury Liner. It would become her best selling album of all time and top the country charts, thanks to her rollicking Chuck Berry cover "C'est La Vie ( You Never Can Tell), "Making Believe"( originally a hit for Kitty Wells) and the first known cover of Townes Van Zandt's 1972 song "Pancho and Lefty".  Listening to the album, ytou'll find yourself in awe of the great musicianship (including rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist Rodney Crowell) and the purity of Emmylou's voice. Later in the year she would marry her producer, Brian Ahern.
