Blue Kentucky Girl is an album by country music artist Emmylou Harris, released in 1979. The album features delving more traditional country than the country-rock sound of Harris' previous releases. Songs include work by Willie Nelson and Gram Parsons.

Eschewing the more rock-leaning sound she’d become known for, Emmylou Harris went country as cowboy boots for 1979’s Blue Kentucky Girl. There’s a touch of the album title state’s famous bluegrass in the jaunty, fiddle-touched opener, Sister’s Coming Home. And the Gram Parsons tune found here is one of his most traditional cuts-a lonesome, wistful Hickory Wind. She also teamed up with a couple of other powerful, contemporary voices-Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt-to deliver a majorly twangy Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. Blue Kentucky Girl (Remastered) Emmylou Harris. Her father, Walter Harris, was a Marine Corps officer and her father was reported missing in action in Korea in 1952 and spent ten months as a prisoner of war. Born in Birmingham, Alabama, Harris spent her childhood in North Carolina and Woodbridge, Virginia and she married fellow songwriter Tom Slocum in 1969 and recorded her first album, Gliding Bird.
