Acclaimed singer Emmylou Harris to write memoir
By CHRIS TALBOTT , AP Music Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Emmylou Harris is adding writer to her list of accomplishments.

The acclaimed singer-songwriter has reached a deal with Penguin imprint Blue Rider Press to write a yet-untitled book, aimed for publication in the fall of 2015. Blue Rider executive editor Sarah Hochman will edit.

It's the first book for the Country Music Hall of Fame member, but not her first look back. Harris also is re-releasing her groundbreaking and Grammy Award-winning 1996 album "Wrecking Ball" on April 8 as a three-disc set with new material and a DVD.

Harris won her 13th Grammy Award in January when she and Rodney Crowell took best Americana album for "Old Yellow Moon."

Still far too active, young, and talented to be wasting her time on memoirs.  Live a little more, sweet Emmy!
