Stephen Stills and Judy Collins will hit the road again this November in support of last year’s ‘Everybody Knows,’ a riveting ten-song collection that breathes new life into a trove of gems from their five-decade intertwined history. Dates begin November 1 in Texas with stops throughout the month in Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, George, and Florida.
‘Everybody Knows’ is brimming with rich harmonies from two of American music’s most unmistakable voices, accompanied by Stills’ storied guitar work and a tight-knit three-piece behind them. On the album, Stills and Collins reflect on fifty years of music and friendship, beginning with their tumultuous love affair in the late 1960s.
Stills and Collins have penned a number of songs about one another throughout the years, perhaps most famously the Crosby, Stills and Nash juggernaut “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes.” ‘Everybody Knows’ finds the pair revisiting some of this work, including Stills’ “Judy,” a 1968 demo which remained lost for decades, and Collins’ “Houses,” from her 1975 Platinum-selling ‘Judith’ album. ‘Everybody Knows’ comes in the midst of an illustrious three-year stretch for Collins: her 2015 record ‘Strangers Again’ earned her highest Billboard 200 debut in almost 30 years, and 2016’s ‘Silver Skies Blue’ earned her first GRAMMY nomination since 1976. Stills and Collins’ 50-date U.S. tour will continue into November. A full list of stops is below.
