Biography

Alison Krauss is one of the most Grammy Award-winning musicians of all time, earning critical acclaim with her blend of bluegrass, country, and American folk music. Born in Decatur, Illinois, on July 23, 1971, she signed with Rounder Records as a 15 year-old fiddle prodigy in 1986 and released her label debut, Too Late to Cry, in 1987. Two Highways followed in 1989, serving not only as her first Grammy-nominated record, but also her first collaboration with the band Union Station. Krauss spent the 1990s alternating between solo releases and collaborations with Union Station, winning Grammys for projects like 1990's I've Got That Old Feeling, 1992's Every Time You Say Goodbye, 1994's I Know Who Holds Tomorrow, and 1997's So Long So Wrong. 2000 proved to be a turning point for Krauss, thanks to her appearances on Kenny Rogers' Number 1 country single "Buy Me a Rose" and the multi-platinum film soundtrack O Brother, Where Art Thou? Already celebrated as an icon of traditional roots music, she reached a new audience with 2007's Raising Sand, a collection of duets with former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant. Raising Sand went platinum in both the US and the UK, peaking at Number 2 on the charts in both countries. It also won "Album of the Year" at the 2009 Grammy Awards. Krauss' next release with Union Station, 2011's Paper Airplane, climbed to Number 1 on the Top Country Albums chart in America, as did her next solo release, 2017's Windy City. Raise the Roof, her second collaboration with Robert Plant, arrived in 2021 and returned both artists to the upper reaches of the charts, peaking at Number 7 in the US and Number 5 in the UK.
