Alison Krauss is largely responsible for keeping bluegrass music alive and well in the U.S., and she’s got the awards to prove it. The singer-songwriter has received 27 Grammy Awards, making her the most awarded female artist in all of Grammy history — not too shabby for 42 short years. Krauss is a nationwide favorite in concert and has been performing onstage since the early 90s and selling out tours across North America since the early 2000s. She loves taking the stage just as much as recording in the studio, and ticket holders get to hear her soulful, soothing soprano up close, in addition to seeing her expertly play the fiddle, piano and mandolin. Her last studio album was 1999's Forget About It, which hit No. 5 on the Top Country Albums chart.
This bluegrass-country singer has been writing and performing her own music since she was a teenager. She put out her first album with the highly acclaimed Union Station band in 1985 and has since released 14 albums. The star’s first album to rise to the Billboard chart’s was 1990's I’ve Got That Old Feeling, which also scored her first Grammy award. Her next few albums also saw massive success, then New Favorite came out in 2001 and solidified her career as a solid country and bluegrass artist. Lonely Runs Both Ways was released in 2004 and quickly became a gold-certified album. She received heaps of acclaim for her contribution to the successful "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" soundtrack as well. Touted as being one of the most influential people in country music today, Alison Krauss is a wonder to witness onstage and an adventurous and fun departure from traditional pop music.
