Recorded in November 2005, this star-studded line-up is the kind of bill you might only find on Mountain Stage. Lead by one of music’s most iconic and incomparable voices, Emmylou Harris, we also hear performances from the Honky Tonk Hero Billy Joe Shaver (August 16, 1939 – October 28, 2020), the unmistakable Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and a set of John Hartford songs by his son Jamie Hartford and his band. Click here to see the playlist.

Find out where you can listen each week, and enjoy our Song of the Week- Emmylou’s unforgettable take on “Love Hurts,” which she first sang with Gram Parsons in 1973. The classic Felice Bryant and Bourdlreax Bryant composition has been covered by the likes of Roy Orbison, and coincidentally, The Everly Brothers, whose Don Everly recently passed away.
