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. 

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.
