Speaking to NME magazine about her favourite tracks, Gwen said: ''I like a lot of the Motown stuff and all of the classic Christmas songs - the Andrews Sisters and things like that.''

Country singer Emmylou Harris is seen clutching her interview outfit on a hanger as she arrives at the studio for 'The Late Show with David Letterman'. She waves at the photographers and says, 'I'll see you later!' though the paparazzi are not at all happy with this arrangement and one man yells, 'No, not later, now! It's too cold, I won't be here!'
Emmylou Harris has entered a plea of "not guilty" after being charged with a hit-and-run attack in October. The legendary country singer, songwriter and backing vocalist was charged when police deemed she had crashed her rental into another car while travelling on the 405 freeway, fleeing the scene shortly afterwards.
According to TMZ.com, the Los Angeles County District Attorney filed the misdemanor charge against Emmylou today (January 31, 2013), though the 65-year-old Grammy winner denied the whole thing. She is charged with slamming into another person's car on October 1st 2012 around 10pm, before taking off. Emmylou's representative acknowledged the incident, though described it as a "garden-variety accident that happens every day on the 405," claiming the singer only left the scene because had no idea she had hit another car. Worryingly, Emmylou's not guilty plea means she faces around 6 months in jail if she is convicted of the hit-and-run charge.
A long-time collaborator of Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Mark Knopfler and Dolly Parsons, Emmylou remains one of the biggest names in folk music. Her last studio album, 2010's Hard Bargain, reached No.3 on the U.S. country chart and No.18 on the Billboard Hot 200.

All eyes will be on Bruce Springsteen during Grammy’s week, as the New Jersey rocker will be the recipient of the MusiCares Person of the Year award. To celebrate the honour, a Bruce Springsteen tribute concert will take place in Los Angeles on February 8, 2013, featuring some of the biggest names in rock and pop and hosted by Jon Stewart.
The event, which is already sold out, will feature musical highlights such as Elton John, Kenny Chesney and Mumford And Sons. A whole host of musicians of varying genres and eras have been included in the line-up. Patti Smith, with whom Bruce co-wrote the hit ‘Because The Night’ will be there, as will Faith Hill, Emmylou Harris, as well as Alabama Shakes, Eddie Vedder and Neil Young. Proceeds for the concert will go to MusiCares, an organisation set up to provide support for struggling musicians in financial, medical and personal need.
The annual MusiCares Person of the Year award is attributed to a star whose artistic accomplishments are as worthy of merit as their philanthropic work. Previous winners of the award include Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, Paul McCartney and Bono.
Singer Emmylou Harris could potentially be facing some pretty hefty charges, after it emerged that she is being investigated for a suspected hit and run case in Los Angeles, TMZ reports.
The multi-Grammy winning artist is said to have hit a car on an L.A. freeway, before hitting the gas and getting the heck out of there. Unfortunately for Harris, if the charges prove to be true, she won't outrun her troubles for too long as the Los Angeles law enforcement are now hot on her heels.

Unfortunately, the Band's music didn't have much influence on the way future music would develop. But The Last Waltz, a concert film of the Band's 1976 farewell performance, remains an essential artwork. The film is a reminder that while they lasted, the Band (guitarist Robbie Robertson, drummer Levon Helm, keyboardists Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel, and bassist Rick Danko) was as good as any group in rock history.
