Saturday Emmylou Blogging

I remember seeing Rose Maddox on Town Hall Party back in the '50's. I met her once, at the Father's Day Bluegrass Festival.

John Jorgensen was also in The Desert Rose Band.

Emmylou Harris believes Maddox has never received the recognition she deserves, in part because of what Harris calls a reluctance in American society to celebrate the value of white country and roots music.[11] Dolly Parton also credits Maddox as an early influence.[12] Laura Cantrell's song "California Rose" was written in memory of Maddox.
