About the artist
Alison Krauss (born on July 23, 1971 in Decatur, Illinois), is a bluegrass singer
and virtuoso fiddle player who grew up in Champaign, Illinois.
Krauss initially studied classical violin, starting at five, but she quickly switched to
bluegrass. By age eight she started entering local talent contests and at ten she
had her own band. At twelve she won the Illinois State Fiddle Championship and
the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass in America named her the Most
Promising Fiddler in the Midwest.
In 1987, her debut album Too Late To Cry was released when she was 16. This
was followed by her first record with her band Union Station in 1989, Two
Highways. At this time, the lineup of Union Station was Jeff White (guitar, lead &
harmony vocals), John Pennell (bass) -- who has written many of Alison's earliest
material, most notably the favorite "Everytime You Say Goodbye," and Mark
Harman (banjo, harmony vocals).
