On her 29th album, Emmylou Harris continues the evolution from innocent folkie to present day renaissance woman. Here, drum loops and middle eastern melodies nestle in comfortably next to warm guitar work and Harris' gently wavering voice.
This is the title track album of Red Dirt Girl. The album marked a significant departure for Harris, as eleven of the twelve tracks were written or co-written by her. She had previously been best known for covering other songwriters' work.

Lyrics to "Red Dirt Girl" song by Emmylou Harris: Me and my best friend Lillian And her blue tick hound dog Gideon Sittin on the front porch cooling . .She grew up tall and she grew up thin Buried that old dog Gideon By a crepe myrtle bush in the back of the yard Her daddy turned mean and her mama leaned hard Got in trouble with a boy from town Figured that she might as well settle down So she dug right in Across a red dirt line just a little.
