Alison Krauss Biography:
Now, still under 40 years old, Alison has received 17 Grammy awards, as well as an impressive amount of CMA (Country Music Association) and IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) awards. Which is to say nothing of the Academy of Country Music Awards, Canadian Country Music Awards, and numerous other acolades she's received.
Alison is now aptly backed by one of the most gifted and versatile bands that bluegrass has to offer. While Union Station does have a traditional bluegrass make-up, they also veer now and then to perform Beatles covers and other diversions.
