Alison Krauss & Union Station
So Long So Wrong
- Alison Krauss & Union Station
Alison Krauss & Union Station take "bluegrass back to the future" (Spin Magazine). Grammy, CMA (Country Music Association) and IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) award winners, this top-flight road and studio band serve up another stellar album, once again setting the standard in their field. Alison Krauss & Union Station rely on no gimmicks -- just down-home virtuosity and some of the loveliest, most heartfelt singing you're likely to hear.
The group's follow-up to 1995's double-platinum, award-laden Now That I've Found You: A Collection demonstrates that Krauss & Union Station are more interested in the music than in superstardom. A magnificent singer, Krauss takes lead vocals on only eight of the 14 cuts here, preferring to share the spotlight, as bluegrass groups often do. She has rejected other record company offers and is staying with the label that originally believed in her. The music here is by and large straight-ahead bluegrass, with a public domain song like `Little Liza Jane' sharing the stage with current Nashville tunes by such writers as Kostas and Harley Allen and even pop star Michael McDonald." --Billboard
