Alison Krauss & Union Stationfeaturing Jerry Douglas are set to criss-cross the country this summer on a nationwide tour eventually taking them to over 50 cities.  It has been several years since Alison Krauss along with Union Station band members Dan Tyminski (guitar, mandolin and lead vocals), Barry Bales (bass and harmony vocals), Ron Block (banjo, guitar and harmony vocals), and Jerry Douglas (Dobro and harmony vocals) toured together. Their last go around saw raves from critics who witnessed “Krauss and Union Station induce awe with their musical virtuosity…pangs of heartache with their ballads of disillusionment and, most significantly, the giddiness that results from hearing a familiar tune played well.” (Chicago Sun Times) It is with great pleasure that they announce their live return with a nationwide tour, set to kick off in Louisville, KY on June 4th.

On April 12th, 2011 Rounder Records will release the eagerly anticipatedAlison Krauss and Union Station album, Paper Airplane. A truly breathtaking collection of 11 exquisite songs, Paper Airplane is Krauss’ 14th album and the band’s follow-up to 2004’s triple Grammy® winningLonely Runs Both Ways.

Part of Alison Krauss’ incontestable talent is how effortlessly she bridges the gap between roots music and country, rock and pop. Don’t miss this opportunity to catch the stunning live performances of Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas.
