Modern country rock — the real stuff, not the Nashvegas pastiche — arguably begins with Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell. They pioneered a groundbreaking mix of country authenticity and rock ’n’ roll risk that continues to inspire. Any occasion that brings Harris and Crowell together is cause to rejoice. When that gig includes Sam Bush and is a celebration of bluegrass icon and Shelby native Earl Scruggs, it’s icing on the cake.
