Details of Alison Krauss and the Ticket Luck value
Alison Krauss born on July 23rd 1971, is a well known American bluegrass-country singer and fiddle player. She stepped into the music industry at a young age and fortunately, won various local competitions by the age of ten. Moving ahead further, she recorded her songs for the first time on her brother's album at fourteen. She signed with Rounder Records in 1985 and released her first solo album at sixteen in 1987. She was invited to join the band with which she still is a part of Alison Krauss & Union Station (AKUS), and later released her first album with them as a group in 1989.
So far, she has released more than ten albums and has been ascribed by audiophiles with helping to usher in a new interest in bluegrass music in the United States. Her soundtrack performances have led her to even higher popularity status, including the Grammy-winning O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, an album also credited with raising American interest in bluegrass, and the Cold Mountain soundtrack, which led to her performance at the 2004 Academy Awards. During her entire career life she has won 20 Grammy Awards more than any other female artist and tied for seventh-most among all artists along with numerous other awards.
Alison Krauss was born in Decatur, Illinois, but was raised in Champaign, Illinois. She began studying classical violin at the age of five but shortly switched to bluegrass. According to Krauss herself, she first became involved with music because her mother wanted to get her involved in music, in addition to art and sports. At twelve she won the Texas State Fiddle Championship; at thirteen she won the Walnut Valley Festival Fiddle Championship, and the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass in America named her the Most Promising Fiddler in the Midwest. Krauss first met Dan Tyminski around 1984 at a festival held by the Society. Krauss made her recording debut in 1985 on her brother Viktor's independent album, Different Strokes. She performed with John Pennell, bassist and songwriter, from the age of twelve in a band called Silver Rail. Pennell later formed Union Station and Krauss joined at his invitation, replacing their previous fiddler Andrea Zonn. Pennell remains one of her favorite songwriters and wrote some of her early work including the popular Every Time You Say Goodbye. Later that year she signed to Rounder Records, and in 1987, at sixteen, her debut album Too Late to Cry was released with Union Station as her backup band.
Adam Steffey left Union Station in 1998, and famous dobro player Jerry Douglas replaced him. Douglas had provided studio back-up to Krauss's records since 1987's Too Late To Cry. She acknowledged his abilities, and even introduced Douglas on their album Live as the greatest dobro player ever . Their next album, New Favorite, was released on August 14, 2001. The album went on to win the Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album, with the single The Lucky One winning a Grammy as well. This was followed up by the double platinum double album Live in 2002 and a release of a DVD of the same live performance in 2003. Both the album and the DVD were recorded during a performance at The Louisville Palace.
Lonely Runs Both Ways was released in 2004, and eventually became another Alison Krauss & Union Station gold certified album. Krauss believes the group was probably the most unprepared we've ever been for the album and that songs were chosen as needed rather than planned in advance. She also performed a duet with Brad Paisley on his album Mud on the Tires in the single Whiskey Lullaby. The single was a huge hit, ranking in the top fifty of the Billboard Hot 100 and the top five of the Hot Country Songs, and won the Country Music Association Awards for Best Musical Event and Best Music Video of the year.
Krauss normally sings as a soprano that has been described as angelic. She has said her musical influences include J. D. Crowe, Ricky Skaggs, and Tony Rice. Many of her songs are described as sad, and most of them about lost love. Krauss herself believes that while selecting songs, she looks for tunes that she can relate to. She has also described her general approach to constructing an album as starting with a single song and selecting other tracks based on the first, to give the final album a somewhat consistent theme and mood. She most commonly performs in the bluegrass and country genres, but is sometimes said to stray into pop music as well.
At the beginning of her career Krauss did not plan to make music videos, & after recording her first she was convinced it was so bad that she would never do another. Even so, she now has many music videos. She has made suggestions on the style or theme to some videos, though she tends to leave such decisions up to the director of the particular video. The director for a video to If I Didn't Know Any Better from Lonely Runs Both Ways, for example, was selected because Krauss enjoyed the work he had done with Def Leppard, and she wondered what he could do with their music.
