Red Dirt Girl
Seeking something to fill the void created by the death of her old partner Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris has turned, like so many of us, to baseball. She's a Braves fan, which is rather unfortunate, but more than that, as this San Diego Union-Tribune piece makes clear, she's just a fan of the game:
“How could you not be a baseball fan? It's such a great game,” said Harris. “All I do during baseball season is watch games. I was so pumped the other night when Greg Maddux stole a base! My team is the Braves, but they don't stand much of a chance.”
Joan Jett is a big Orioles fan, and Mary Chapin Carpenter follows the game as well... Anyone else?
