(L-R) Alison Krauss & Union Sation members Jerry Douglas, Alison Krauss, Ron Block, Dan Tyminski, Barry Bales, and engineers Neal Cappellino, Mike Shipley, and Brad Blackwood

Alison Krauss & Union Station have a lot to celebrate this week, with two Grammy awards for “Paper Airplane” in the Best Bluegrass Album and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, which was given to the sound engineers of the album.

Mike Shipley and Neal Cappellino were honored for their work as the primary engineers and Brad Blackwood from Euphonic Masters was awarded for his role as the mastering engineer.  Over the years, these individuals have worked with everyone from AC/DC, to Maroon 5, to Del McCoury, to Vince Gill.  All three were instrumental in the making of Paper Airplane, and we’re thrilled with their win.
