Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris were all successful artists on their own, but when they released their 1987 Trio album, we fell in love with their three-part harmonies on the track, “Wildflowers.”

Now, Parton, Ronstadt and Harris are releasing a new never-been-heard version of the classic collaboration.

The “Wildflowers” remake comes as Parton, Ronstadt and Harris are about to release their three-CD set incorporating the trio’s two albums Trio (1987) and Trio II (1999). The set features both records newly remastered and additional rare and unreleased music.

The bonus disc on the set has 20 songs, including alternate recordings of album tracks and 11 previously unreleased tracks.

A single CD incorporating tracks from all three discs will also be available to fans.

Both Trio and Trio II won GRAMMY Awards and featured classic songs like, “Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?” “Wildflowers” and “To Know Him Is To Love Him.”
