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. Rodney Crowell’s “Even Cowgirls Get the Blues” featured harmonies by Dolly Parton and Linda Ronstadt, and came out of the women’s ill-fated 1978 recording sessions, where they first attempted to record a “trio” album (nearly a full decade before they actually succeeded in doing so).

The album won the 1980 Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. “Beneath Still Waters” became Harris’ fourth #1 hit, covers of The Drifters’ 1960 hit “Save The Last Dance For Me” and the title track (originally recorded by Loretta Lynn) were top ten hits on the US country charts.

In 2006, the album ranked #20 on CMT‘s 40 Greatest Albums in Country Music.
