Townes Van Zandt

Emmylou Harris performing the Townes Van Zandt song 'Pancho and Lefty' in 1977.

I used to have a big time crush on Emmylou but she never answered any of my letters.

Her bell like voice is even better today. I saw her perform in Louisville around 1973 or so. As I recall it was a damn fine concert.


  1. she is gorgeous, sad that she didn't reply to your mail though - were you writing with green ink?

  2. I don't know anything about Emmylou,
    but if it were Bonnie Lou, I remember her from Midwest Hayride, Ruth Lyons Show and Paul Dixon Show. You are probably too young to remember any of those shows.
