Fiddle master, vocalist and bandleader extraordinaire Alison Krauss has been holding bluegrass court for decades. In that time, fans have seen her go from traditional bluegrass artist to being one of the artists pushing the genre into the mainstream.
For the last couple of decades, Krauss has recorded with her all-star band, Union Station. On her latest release, Windy City, however, Krauss returns to her roots as a solo artist.
The album sees her covering classic country numbers, including “All Alone Am I,” the hit by Brenda Lee, John Hartford’s “Gentle On My Mind,” and Willie Nelson’s “I Never Cared for You.”
NPR describes the album, which features Union Station musicians Ron Block and bassist Barry Bales, along with Hank Williams, Jr., Jamey Johnson, Sidney and Suzanne Cox and Dan Tyminski, as “pros romping through their repertoire, with Krauss making each song charmingly personal.”
