Emmylou Harris and her band stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to perform "New Orleans," a charming country rock number from her latest album Hard Bargain. Harris' song pays tribute to the people of the Big Easy who made it through Hurricane Katrina and stuck around for the immediate aftermath. "To cut and run ain't in our blood / we are New Orleans," she sings, delivering the line with both defiance and a touch of sweetness.
