Let's get these few questions out of the way which I've seen beginning with is Emmylou Harris still alive? Yes she is. How old is Emmylou Harris? In Apr of 2023 she will be 76 yrs old. Was Emmylou Harris and Graham Parsons ever married? No they were not. Where was Emmylou Harris born? That would be Birmingham Alabama.
She has been married three times, has two daughters from the first two marriages and now has a granddaughter born in 2009 and a grandson born in 2012. Emmylou is also a vegetarian.
Emmylou has worked with many artists over the years across all styles and as she said in an interview, one song at a time. She has won 14 Grammy Awards, 3 CMA Awards and 2 AMA Awards to date. There have been several Emmylou Harris Greatest Hits albums over the years so that should tell you something.
Her roots began in folk music being inspired by artists such as Joan Biaz, Bob Dylan, Buffy St Marie, Ian & Sylvia and Pete Seeger. Later on working with the late Gram Parsons, she got into the country music field. Emmylou was on a drama scholarship to become an actress, but followed a bunch of hippies to Virginia Beach and then followed a career into music. A decision I'll bet she doesn't regret at all.
