Emmylou Harris

For years, Emmylou Harris used “Sally Rose” as an alias on tour, so when she started writing songs about a singer whose lover and mentor - a hard-living, hard-drinking musician - is killed while on the road, the name was a natural fit. Based loosely on her time with influential singer-songwriter Gram Parsons, 1985's THE BALLAD OF SALLY ROSE was Harris' first self-composed album and remains one of her favorites. Highlights include the singles “White Line” (which reached #14 on the country charts) and “Rhythm Guitar” with Waylon Jennings on lead guitar. In addition, Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt sing harmony throughout the album. Now available from Rhino, a two-disc Expanded Edition of THE BALLAD OF SALLY ROSE features a newly remastered version of the original along with unreleased demo recordings for 10 tracks, most of which feature the stripped-back intimacy of Harris alone on acoustic guitar.
