Chrissy and Emmy - Not Your Average It Girls

For those of you above the age of 40, it's probably not that hard to remember when Chrissie Hynde and Emmylou Harris were the "it girls" of rock and country, respectively. So here's a little tribute to them (including my all-time favorite Emmylou song - her version of Butch Hancock's Bluebird).

I just saw Chrissie with her new band mate, JP Jones, live in Boston. She is incredible. At 59, she appears to be going strong! Nice Tribute to 2 of the most amazing women ever in the history of music. Emmylou's song "Til I gain control" is always close at hand in my ipod shuffle. Nice!

It is really cool that Chrissie (and Emmy) are still going strong in their mid/late 50s (I'm not sure how old Emmy is). And I also love Til I Gain Control Again!
