Californian Americana singer/songwriter Sam Outlaw explains the roots of his passion for country music - Emmylou Harris's classic 1975 country debut 'Pieces of the Sky'.
We talk about how the album introduced Sam to a litany of classic country songwriters, the Hot Band that Emmylou assembled to record the album, why she and Sam both used non-country players for their debut albums and how Emmylou is like the Foo Fighters.
