I think Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt sang with her originally but their record companies refused that so Emmylou sang all the parts - just unbelievable...
Yes, Emmylou did a fantastic job with this song. She is incredibly talented. Linda Ronstadt and Dolly Parton did provide harmony vocals on the album version which showed up on Emmylou's 1981 album "Evaqngeline". Though neither Ronstadt's nor Parton's record companies would allow their artist's vocals to be used on the single, so Harris rerecorded the song, singing all three parts for the single release.
Harris' popularity continues to this very day. In 2005 she won her 12th Grammy Award. Her 2008 album "All I Intended To Be" reached #22 on the billboard album chart and #2 on the Canadian album chart as well as #4 on the U.S. country music chart.
