Emmylou Harris, Songwriter

I started working on a draft of a future CLAR show focusing on Emmylou Harris’ as a songwriter.

The good news is, there’s a lot of material to choose from.

The bad news is, I have four hours’ worth of material, but I only need two hours, so I’ll be doing some cutting.

But before I create a copy of the current list and start chopping away, I thought I’d post the original raw list here, for those who might be interested.

I’m not sure that the list is exhaustive, but I think it’s fairly close to being complete.

The Spotify playlist is here.

Here’s the song list:

All songs are written or co-written by Emmylou Harris. Co-writers’ names are noted parenthetically. The albums are listed in chronological order as to release date, and the song sequencing is left intact within the albums–but, of course, only her compositions are included below.

Enjoy.
