The Grand Ole Opry® presented by Humana® honored Alison Krauss on her 20th anniversary as an Opry member last week at the Wednesday Night Opry with performances by Krauss and Union Station, bluegrass great Larry Sparks, multi-award-winner Jamey Johnson, and more. Krauss was inducted as an Opry member on July 3, 1993.
Following performances by Krauss and Union Station and collaborations with Johnson and Sparks, Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher honored the 20-year member with a commemorative print and words about her career.
“Alison truly is the artist’s artist,” Fisher said. “She is looked up to by some of the finest performers in the music industry as truly the best. … For those of us who are destined to go to heaven, you give us a sneak peek of what an angel sounds like.”
