One of the most influential and artistically unique country artists of the past 20 years, Emmylou Harris has created a body of work that continues to stand the test of time. This best of collection documents some of her most resonant material, including Paul Kennerly's "Born to Run," a song that revolves around finding freedom from the potential shackles of relationships.
Like many country songs, these tunes highlight the trials and tribulations of love. Songs such as "Someone Like You" and "Pledging My Love" are about the wonders of true love, while "I'm Movin' On" and "(Lost His Love) on Our Last Date" are poignant reminders of love's pain and loss. Finally, two classics are included here--"Mr. Sandman," and Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman's "Save the Last Dance For Me."
