•     I first fell in love with Alison Krauss back in 1991, when I started my career in radio. Her single at the time was “I’ve Got That Feeling.” Even then — just barely twenty years old — you knew there was something special about her voice. She quickly became a favorite of both the Country and Bluegrass worlds, and her videos found favor with CMT. Then, in 1995, she hit commercial paydirt with her cover of Keith Whitley’s “When You Say Nothing At All,” which netted her several CMA Awards that fall.
•     Since that point, there’s one thing that I have longed for concerning Alison Krauss — the fire. Don’t get me wrong. She’s put together some incredible albums since then. But, I would say that ninety percent of her musical output, take away the excellent 2007 collaboration with Robert Plant, Raising Sand, has been ballads. They show her vocal tones to be a pristine and angelic as anyone. But, I missed that young fiddler from Illinois who set the world on fire.
•     Guess what? She’s back on Windy City. There are some incredible ballads on this splendid album of obscure covers, but what is really dazzling are the songs with a bit of tempo. When she sings “It’s Goodbye And So Long To You,” originally recorded by The Osborne Brothers, she attacks the song with as much vigor and swagger as anything she has done in quite some time. The same can also be said for her version of Johnnie and Jack’s 1951 top~five hit “Poison Love.” These performances have that fire and passion, and sound like she was having an absolute blast doing them. A little slower perhaps is her cover of “Dream Of Me,” a song that she learned in Bluegrass circles, but Country fans will recognize from the catalog of Vern Gosdin. Incidentally, Krauss was unaware that Buddy Cannon, her producer, was one of the writers of the song. She turns in a very moving performance on the cut.
•     But, any Krauss album would not be complete without ballads, and she delivers as always. “You Don’t Know Me” gets a beautiful treatment, as does her heartbreaking rendition of the Bobby Osborne / Pete Gobel title cut. As good as those cuts are, I urge, beg, plead with you to stop what you’re doing and go listen to her absolutely flawless take on Brenda Lee’s “All Alone Am I.” No, seriously. Go do it right now.
•     Ok, now that you’ve heard that, you will be ready to hear the rest of the album. I hope on her next album of originals, she takes this approach. The ballads are great, but when she’s got that fire and grit in her voice, it’s a sound to behold. All in all, this might very well be her most complete album in two decades. And, that is saying something very special!   •     http://www.soundslikenashville.com/

Alison will be performing alongside these fine musicians:
Barry Bales
•   This year marks the start of Barry and Alison’s 28th year of traveling and recording together in Union Station. In that time, Barry has become a successful producer and songwriter, as well as one of the most in~demand session players in acoustic music. Barry has received 15 Grammys, 22 International Bluegrass Music Association awards — including 4 Bass Player of the Year trophies — 1 Country Music Association award, and 2 Academy of Country Music awards, including Song of the Year for “Nobody To Blame” written with and recorded by Chris Stapleton. Barry also co~wrote, “Miles To Go”, which appeared on the AKUS album, Paper Airplane. He is a passionate outdoorsman and conservationist, as well as manager of his sixth~generation family farm.
Ron Block
•   Union Station’s banjoist/guitarist/vocalist Ron Block is something of a musical Huck Finn, a tireless adventurer exploring various styles yet rooted firmly in the bluegrass~country tradition. Ron, Alison and Barry have been musical partners in Union Station for 26 years. As a songwriter Ron’s originals have served as the band’s spiritual cornerstone, including “In The Palm of Your Hand,” “A Living Prayer,” and “There is a Reason.”  An in~demand session musician, he’s played on recordings by Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, Little Big Town, Josh Turner, and many others. A solo artist as well, he has released seven recordings of his own since 2000.
Sidney Cox
•   Sidney Cox is a founding member of The Cox Family from Cotton Valley, Louisiana. The Cox Family is comprised of Willard Cox and his three children Sidney, Evelyn and Suzanne. They derive their sounds from combining country, bluegrass, and gospel styles and are renowned for their vocal harmonies. The Cox Family and Alison have been beloved companions and musical collaborators for the past 30 years, including on 1994’s Grammy Winning Gospel album, “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow”. Also a distinguished songwriter, Sidney has written with Garth Brooks, Robert Lee Castleman, John Randal, John Penell and Debra Allen, among others. Sidney penned Alan Jackson’s ‘Had It Not Been You’ and has written several songs recorded by Alison including ‘I’ve Got That Old Feeling’, ‘Longest Highway’, ’New Fool’, ‘Wish I Still Had You’ ‘Tonight I’ll Be Lonely Too’, ‘Last Love Letter’ and 'Bonita and Bill Butler’ as well as ‘Borderline’ and “Broadway” which were co~written with sister, Suzanne.
Suzanne Cox
•   Suzanne Cox is also a founding member of The Cox Family. The Cox Family have released numerous albums on Rounder and Asylum Records throughout their decades~long, illustrious career, including their most recent triumph, “Gone Like the Cotton” for which the title track was co-written by Suzanne and Sidney. The Cox Family’s vocal contributions can be heard on albums by Alison, Randy Travis, Alan Jackson, The Reno Brothers and Ron Block. They’ve toured with the Counting Crows, Ricky Skaggs, Ralph Stanley and others. The Cox Family also appeared in the film ‘O’ Brother Where Art Thou?’ and recorded three songs for the multi~platinum, award~winning soundtrack, which includes Suzanne’s spectacular soprano on the song ‘I Am Weary (Let Me Rest)’. Suzanne has also performed live with Alison as well as other artists including Charlie Daniels and Dolly Parton.
James Mitchell
•   James Mitchell is a studio guitarist in Nashville. He grew up in North Western Florida where he started playing guitar at the age of 4. He began his career as a working musician at age 13, in the local gospel scene. Aspiring to be a session guitar player, he moved to Nashville shortly after turning 21. James has played on Grammy nominated and #1 albums with artists ranging from Cole Swindell to Willie Nelson.
Jerry Roe
•   Jerry Roe is a third~generation musician, and a native born~and~raised in Nashville, TN. Getting an early start in the business, he started working in the studio at age 11 and left for his first world tour at age 17. A multi~instrumentalist and songwriter, he spends most of his time working in the studio as a drummer and bassist, while also touring with his own band Friendship Commanders.
Matt Rollings
•   Matt’s playing has graced thousands of recordings and provided the sonic spark for legendary live tours. From his two~fisted, “guts meets grace” piano work with Lyle Lovett, to his Gospel~tinged keyboard contributions with storied artists like Willie Nelson, Mavis Staples, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler and countless others, he’s the very definition of a “musician’s musician.” Rollings is a Grammy winning producer, having worked with such greats as Keith Urban, Willie Nelson, and Mary Chapin Carpenter, as well as producing alluring new recordings for emerging artists like Alisan Porter (The Voice), Connor Leimer, Jon Regen and M Callahan.
