A single featuring Silver Daggerand Tennessee, taken from the album will be released on October 10. ‘The Harrow & The Harvest‘, “is a new Southern sound,” writes Colin Meloy of The Decemberists, Welch and Rawlings met at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Together, they moved to Nashville, TN, where most of their work is produced. Since then, they have influenced and inspired new generations of country and folk singers, songwriters and players. They have earned the slavish admiration of many of the most lauded and loved voices of the Americana milieu, and have had their songs recorded by the likes of Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, and Solomon Burke.
