Catherine Britt Releases Her Sweet Emmylou Music Video


Catherine Britt's tribute to Emmylou Harris was one of her most talked about songs even before it became her latest single.

'Sweet Emmylou', originally a "hidden track" on the original release of Little WildFlower (2008), was recorded in the studio with producers Bill Chambers and Shane Nicholson for Britt's latest self-titled album.

“Sweet Emmylou was written in with my good friend Rory-Lee Feek.

At the time I was heartbroken and when we sat down to write I told him I how I was feeling quite low and listening to old records like Emmylou’s to make me feel better because through her sad songs I felt like misery had company. In many respects the song wrote itself. It's a very special song to me and one of my favourite songs that I have ever written,” says Britt.
