Alison Krauss

Biography

  • Alison is also on valslist with Robert Plant and with her band Union Station

Throughout her remarkable career, which spans a quarter century, though she’s only 39, Alison Krauss has remained grounded and real. Deeply introspective as an artist, she’s commensurately outgoing and spontaneous in conversation—both sides of her character evidencing a life-embracing humanity. In her work, Krauss has managed to consistently locate the fertile common ground between traditional modes and topical themes. Krauss’ most recent triumph, the certified-platinum Raising Sand, her 2007 collaboration with Robert Plant, notched up a total of six Grammy® Awards, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year, bringing her unsurpassed total to 26. This year saw the release of Paper Airplane, the artist’s first album of all-new recordings in partnership with her remarkably skillful and renowned band Union Station.
