Dolly, Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt record GRAMMY Winning “Trio”
On March 2, 1987, Dolly and fellow country music legends Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt released their album “Trio” on the Warner Brothers Nashville Label. “Trio” became one of the most honored and loved albums of 1987, including the remake of the Ronnie Spector single performed originally by the Teddy Bears, “To Know Him is to Love Him.” The song reached No. 1 on the Country Singles Charts.
Dolly, Harris and Ronstadt had tried since the 70’s to come together to make an album, but 1987 was the first window where all of the superstars’ schedules matched up.
The album won the GRAMMY for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and was nominated for Album of the Year. The win marked Dolly’s fourth GRAMMY award.
