Since divorcing in 1993 from her third husband - the English songwriter and musician Paul Kennerley - Emmylou Harris
remained unmarried. At the time of the recording of her 2011 album, Hard Bargain
, the country-folk singer was living with her older brother Walter and her mother Eugenia. The record finds Harris offering two different takes on the single life, whilst the subject of "Nobody
" finds herself ready to face, and embrace, the world on her own, "Lonely Girl" is about a woman still yearning for someone else even at the end of her life.
