We reported that, in describing her work at Goldman Sachs, Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi said she was “helping people to achieve the American dream.” In fact, she said she was “helping people who have achieved the American dream.” We regret any confusion caused by our mistake

Something a little different. Emmylou has backed up nearly everybody in country music. Pretty song.

This is a very rare recording of Emmylou Harris from 1966 at the Cellar Door in Washington DC. A Dick Cerri had a Sunday night radio show in Washington DC until 1993. Dick also hosted folk concerts at the Cellar Door. On a radio show, later in time, he played this recording. I do not know who a Fletcher is, as she thanks this Fletcher, as I believe Fletcher was the feature act and this was the encore part of the concert, based on what he says to the audience, you stayed. Then Ms. Harris mentions a Mike who wrote the song she is about to sing. I do not know who this Mike, as my thinking it, it could be a Mike Auldridge, but I am not sure.
I do not have a un copyright picture to use for this youtube, so I used the mountains of Acadia National Park. I also have a rare recording of John Denver and Shawn Colvin from the Dick Cerri show on youtube. Search the name and Dick Cerri as that will get you to the youtube.

Thanks to westernmaryland1928.
