Trio II is the second album featuring collaboration between American singer/songwriters Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and Dolly Parton, originally released in January 1999 by Asylum Records.

A dozen years after the release of their multi-Platinum, Grammy-winning Trio album, the country music super trio returned with another in the same vein. Five of the ten tracks on this album first appeared on Linda Ronstadt's 1995 album Feels Like Home.

The songs were actually recorded in 1994 by Parton, Ronstadt and Harris, but label disputes and conflicting schedules of the three women prevented its release at the time. In 1999, (after Parton and Harris had parted ways with their respective labels), they decided to finally release the album as originally recorded. Though it yielded no hit singles, Trio II The album reached the Top Five on Billboard's Country Albums chart as well as #62 on Billboard's main album listing, and was certified Gold by the RIAA, and won the trio another Grammy Award in 2000.

Widely agreed upon as technically perfect, this five-year-in-the-making collaboration among these Oprytown divas should be a diamond - or three diamonds: a Trio II tiara. Dolly Parton walks all over this record in true Dollywood fashion, with Emmylou Harris and Ronstadt chirping deliciously behind her. There are plenty of exceptions to this, as "Feels Like Home" is really Ronstadt's, and Harris treats "You'll Never Be The Sun" with crystal, bitter prayer-book reverence. Even contributing fiddles and pedal-steel guitars drop by to accompany Parton without a flaw.

The gals score a soaring version of the old Carter Family classic "Lover's Return" in a heartbreaking three-parter; the choice to include a Parton-heavy Neil Young standard about the survival and solitude of the dope-drenched '60s, "After The Gold Rush", baffled many but it works well. Parton changes his lyrics to say, "I felt like I could cry," instead of voicing the song's former urge to procure some mind-altering substances.

In general, a gem along the beautiful lines of cubic zirconium, from the most well-intended and loving of real-deal songbird girlfriends.

Check out the tracks: After The Gold Rush; Feels Like Home; You’ll Never Be The Sun and Lover’s Return.
