Country Icons Dolly, Linda & Emmylou Announce “The Complete Trio Collection”

Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris have three careers unparalleled in music history….Together they have sold over 200 million albums worldwide and performed for decades in front of countless fans around the globe. It’s no surprise that when their three voices united to release their debut collaboration, the results were remarkable. The threesome released two albums together, “Trio” (1987) and “Trio II” (1999), which have combined to sell more than five million copies worldwide and win three Grammy Awards.

Both of these classic albums have been newly remastered for a three-CD collection packed with rare and unreleased music. Produced by Harris, “The Complete Trio Collection” will be available on September 9th.

On the same date, a single-disc set will also be available entitled “My Dear Companion: Selections From The Trio Collection”, featuring a mix of songs taken from the three-disc set, as will “Farther Along”, a double-LP set of all the bonus material from “The Complete Trio Collection”. “Trio II” will also be released on vinyl for the first time.
