Monday Music: Wayfaring Stranger
In 1980, country-music artist Emmylou Harris made history when she identified with the bluegrass genre in her sixth album, Roses in the Snow. Many guest-appearances are featured on the album including Johnny Cash and a young Ricky Skaggs, who would later proclaim to his own audiences that after wandering in the wilderness of country music he entered the promised land of bluegrass. "Wayfaring Stranger" became a hit single on the country charts that year.
