Default Alison Krauss

I don't think I'm deserving of such a blessing. Listening to her sing takes me to another place. I imagine it's somewhere between heaven and earth. I heard Brad Paisley say once that if the angels don't sing as beautifully as Alison, he'd rather stay here. Do you guys and galls reckon that God gives us glimpses of heaven here on earth? Anyone here lucky enough to have seen her in concert? I just discovered her a year ago and while her voice was an aquirred taste for me at first (it was so delicate and different), there's not another voice more heavenly than hers. There's not a whole lot of people in my age group in Texas that know her or like bluegrass.

I love bluegrass music also. Alison Kraus is one of my favorites. She is not from Kentucky though, but was raised in Illinois.

Maybe that is why her style is "different".

Maybe, her speaking voice is not southern at all really.

I just wish she'd let loose on the fiddle some and cheer up a little. Then again, I guess her melancholy song choices is what ultimately drew me to her. Songs like Restless, Goodbye is all we have, and Stay bring a big smile to my face everytime I hear them.

What a great voice esp. for Bluegrass first time I saw her on Austin City Limits I knew she was something special.Dale Ann Bradley also has that special voice and sounds like Alison somewhat.

Yes, I totally agree. She is so talented and she sure does have a beautiful voice. She sure can play the fiddle as well. We can thank her for making bluegrass popular again and for putting KY back on the map. I have yet to see her in concert, but sure want to!!!

I've seen her four times in concert and every experience was wonderful. I've been a fan of Alison Krauss & Union Station for at least a dozen years. I got to see them when they were recording their live CD at the Louisville Palace back in 2002. It was fabulous! Alison has such a crazy sense of humor and it comes through during her life performances.

I've been a fan of bluegrass all my life. Grew up on it and appreciate the talented musicians involved with it.

I've got the DVD of their live show in Louisville. She is funny. Being a hunter, I really enjoyed her making fun of Barry and his hunting videos. She also pokes some fun at herself which makes her all the more charming and captivating.
