Last week saw the release of the hugely anticipated Paper Airplane (Rounder Records), the first album from Alison Krauss & Union Station in seven years. The band’s sixth full length album was met with universal critical acclaim and a busy release week brought them to New York City where they performed the album’s title track on The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS and The Today Show on NBC, as well as a 3-song performance on NPR affiliate station WNYC’sSoundcheck.
