Buddy & Julie Miller

Buddy & Julie Miller is a 2001 album by Buddy and Julie Miller. Prior to this recording the husband and wife singer-songwriters had each made appearances on the other's solo recordings, but this disc marked their first official release as a duo. The music has been described as more rock based than their earlier, traditional-folk recordings.[1] The majority of the songs were penned by Julie and rounded out by the duo's co-write, "Dirty Water" and a few covers of songs by Richard Thompson, Utah Phillips and Bob Dylan.
