Alison Krauss - Gravity



More than any other artist, Alison Krauss brought bluegrass into the mainstream. Blending bluegrass and folk, she made the music accessible and both her and the genre's popularity increased.

At age eight, she started entering local talent contests. By age ten she had her own band. When she was thirteen, she won a major fiddle championship and the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass in America named her the Most Promising Fiddler in the Midwest. She recorded her first album in 1985 at age 14. and has not looked back. Most recently, she recorded the album Raising Sand with Robert Plant. The album went platinum and won all 5 Grammys for which it was nominated.

Gravity is off her 2004 release Lonely Runs Both Ways which was recorded with her band Union Station.
