Light of the Stable debuted in 1979, with a title track featuring backing vocals from Neil Young, Linda Ronstadt and Dolly Parton. The sublime Rodney Crowell-penned "Angel Eyes," composed specially for this album, features Rick Skaggs on mandolin and Skaggs and Willie Nelson on vocal harmony, and is just one of many highlights. This radiant acoustic masterpiece--graced throughout with the presence of stellar guests--features both contemporary and traditional gems.
A 13-time Grammy winner and Billboard Century Award recipient, Emmylou Harris' career as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years. She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists' recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008.
"Emmylou Harris is an artist with the rare sort of voice that communicates an honest and firmly grounded humanity while possessing a crystalline purity that verges on the angelic. In short, she was a singer born to make a great Christmas album, and in 1979 she did just that with Light of the Stable...if you want to hear music of quiet but compelling beauty which warmly resonates with the true meaning of the holidays, then you'll find this album is an experience to treasure." -Mark Deming, allmusic.com
