*******www.alisonkrauss****/site.php Alison Krauss Website For Alison Krauss, musical collaboration has been a way of life. Her own story, of course, has been nothing short of amazing: signed to Rounder Records as a precocious, 14 year-old fiddler from Champaign, Illinois, she has, over two decades, become the most recognized face in contemporary bluegrass and a critically acclaimed artist who has brought modern sophistication to the genre while respecting its traditions. Krauss has consistently worked to honor her influences, like contemporary bluegrass pioneer Tony Rice, to promote discoveries like the Cox Family and Nickel Creek and to offer her skills as producer for those artists and others, most recently, country star Alan Jackson. With her twelfth release, A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection, Krauss gathers on one elegantly understated disc several previously released collaborations with such artists and friends as Brad Paisley, John Waite, James Taylor, Natalie MacMaster and The Chieftains, along with songs she cut for the films Cold Mountain, O Brother, Where Art Thou? and an inspired by album for the animated The Prince Of Egypt. Already making its way to radio is the remake of Waites Missing You, which the Seattle Post-Intelligencer has called a killer duet with an incandescent Krauss. She also recorded and produced five new tracks, including a soulful slow-dance tempo of Don Williams Lay Down Beside Me with Rounder Records label-mate Waite, to create something far more than just a compilation. With 16 songs, A Hundred Miles or More gracefully balances the new with the familiar to form a vivid portrait of this adventurous artist, chronicling the places shes been and showcasing the hauntingly beautiful solo work Krauss is making right now. While Union Station took a hiatus from touring for most of 2006, Krauss took full advantage of the down time to explore new musical horizons. Her production of Alan Jacksons 2006 release, Like Red on a Rose, which the Chicago Sun-Times declared a masterpiece, took the best-selling artist out of his familiar surroundings to create a moody, intimate song cycle that has been favorably compared to Frank Sinatras In the Wee Small Hours. The New York Times described it as a deeply country record that sounds nothing like a country record. Following the project with Jackson, she recorded the five new tracks for the collection release and worked with long time engineer Gary Paczosa to remix several of the other tracks. As other musical opportunities arose, she relished the opportunity to work, guesting as harmony vocalist or fiddler on several outside projects. Last December, she traveled to Washington, DC to salute Dolly Parton no slouch herself in the bluegrass department at the Kennedy Center Honors, performing Partons classics Jolene and My Tennessee Mountain Home with her friends Suzanne Cox (of the Cox Family) and Cheryl White (of the vocal trio The Whites). Krauss reached that extraordinary 20 Grammy® milestone when her last album with Union Station, Lonely Runs Both Ways, was named 2005s Best Country Album. It wasnt the only award she and her band-mates took home from the 48th Annual Grammys®: Unionhouse Branch garnered Best Country Instrumental Performance and Restless received the Best Country Performance by a Duo/Group Award. Shes also been on the receiving end of several Country Music Association Awards, including Musical Event of the Year for Whiskey Lullaby with Brad Paisley, originally released on Paisleys Mud on the Hill and reprised on A Hundred Miles or More. The International Bluegrass Music Association Awards have honored her on several occasions, most recently for Livin, Lovin, Losin Songs of the Louvin Brothers, which features her duet with James Taylor, Hows the World Treating You, also included on the new album. The two tracks she cut for the Cold Mountain soundtrack, The Scarlet Tide and You Will Be My Ain True Love (with Sting on harmony vocals) were nominated for Oscars in 2004. More impressive, however, than any of these accolades has been Krausss unwavering commitment to being an independent-label artist who has succeeded far beyond the scope of many major-label artists. Shes been able to circulate freely within pop, mainstream country and roots music circles, creating impeccably produced records that appeal to an equally wide-ranging and inquisitive audience. Krauss has continued doing things the old-fashioned way: following her heart and whatever path the music takes her.

**CLICK ON "MORE INFO" FOR LINK FOR MP3 DOWNLOAD!!!** If you use profanity in your comments, your comment will be removed. Don't show your stupidity by using it. In light of a recent comment left by a viewer on May 3, 2009, viewers should be aware that there is a lot of erroneous information about Keith's bio, most notably the bio on CMT****, which is chock full of glaring errors. Keith's given name at birth was JACKIE Keith Whitley, not Jesse Keith Whitley. Jesse Keith Whitley is the biological son of Jackie Keith Whitley and Loretta Lynn "Lorrie" Morgan, born in 1987. Jackie Keith Whitley was born in Kings Daughters Hospital in Ashland, KY on July 1, 1954, the son of the late Elmer Jackson Whitley and Nannie Faye Ferguson Whitley. Back when Keith was lead singer for J. D. Crowe and the New South in the late 1970's and early 1980's, he found he had lost his birth certificate, and he needed one for his passport. So when he received his new one from Frankfort, it came back with the wrong birth date, July 1, 1955. All this information was given to me by his mother during a phone conversation I had with her in 1991. I'm sure Lorrie knew his real birthdate, but why she insisted on putting the wrong one on his tombstone no one seems to know. If you need more proof, I have a digital copy of his original birth announcement provided to me by the Whitley family with his birth date, place of birth, and birth weight. If you need a copy of this, send me a message. This Paul Overstreet/Don Schlitz-penned gem was Keith's 2nd straight #1 song and the second single from his 1988 album "Don't Close Your Eyes." Keith's original stayed at #1 in the US for 2 weeks at the end of 1988. Allison Krauss covered the song in 1995. While Krauss' version was on the charts, Mike Cromwell, then the production director at WMIL-FM in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, concocted a duet merging elements of Krauss' version with Whitley's original hit version. The "duet" garnered national attention, and it spread from at least Philadelphia to Albuquerque. It was never officially serviced to radio and has never been available commercially. Krauss' recording won the 1995 CMA award for "Single of the Year". Then in 2004 Keith's version was #12 on the list of CMT's 100 Greatest Love Songs of All Time.
