Pegi Young, who's been married to the singer-songwriter since 1978 and has been one of his frequent backing singers, released her first album, a self-titled effort for which she wrote seven of the 12 songs.
"It's just sort of a timing thing in some respects," Pegi Young said. "I guess little by little my confidence was growing. It seemed like the next thing you know I was talking to (producer) Elliot Mazer, putting together a band and seriously going in to work in the studio and make a record."
Neil Young plays on the album, as do several of his longtime collaborators.
