About Alison Krauss and Union Station:
Alison Krauss is a bluegrass-country artist from America. She was born July 23, 1971. She is also known as a songwriter.. and she plays the fiddle. She started her music career at a very young age, winning local music contests at age ten as well as recording for the very first time at 14. She released her first album with the band that was to become known as ‘Alison Krauss and Union Station’ (AKUS) in 1989 at the age of eighteen.
She’s released 12 albums, made an appearance on several soundtracks, and has been credited with bringing a renewed interest to Bluegrass music.
Alison Krauss Awards:
By the 2011 Grammy Awards, she had won twenty six Grammy’s.. yes 26! That’s not a typo. Only two other artists beat her for the number of Grammy awards at the time of this post: Quincy Jones with 27 awards and Geog Solti with a whopping 31 to his name. So, if you notice, that does make her number one for female artist. At the time of her first Grammy, Krauss was the second youngest artist to win.. She currently (this post was written July 2011) ties with five other artists. LeAnn Rimes won at 14, Luis Miguel ties Rimes with winning when he was fourteen.. and then Krauss shares the third spot with Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, Joss Stone (LOVE her!) and Rihanna..
Anyway, Alison Krauss has gone on to win the hearts of Americans as well as internationally with her clear, angelic voice. She rarely sings her own songs, but she sure knows how to make other people’s songs big hits!
