    • Emmylou: I like to think about stringing songs together like a string of pearls, or a string of beads, but ultimately it has to be stuff that really works with the band, and gives a spin to the older material.

    • Emmylou: I wanted to be a country artist because I wanted to carry on what Gram was doing, even though I didn't quite understand it because I had only worked with him a year. I just experimented and did what I felt was right.
