I'LL BE YOUR EMMYLOU

And I'll be your June
If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny, too
I'm not asking that much of you
Just sing, little darling, sing with me.

I like to launch new blogs by posting song lyrics for the first entry. It takes away the pressure of the blank page, and the lyrics are always from a song that means something to me. In this case, the song is "Emmylou" by First Aid Kit. I love that sisters and bandmates Johanna and Klara Söderberg were inspired by the musical partnerships of other great artists and wrote this tribute-with-a-twist. Good stuff.

First Aid Kit performing their song "Emmylou" for Laureate Emmylou Harris at the Polar Music Prize banquet at Grand Hôtel in Stockholm. There are professional videos for this song, but I love the sweetness of this version.
