Americana's Cross-County Lines hosted by Alison Krauss & Jerry Douglas

Bluegrass
Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

You can categorize Alison Krauss in many ways — bluegrass experimentalist, pop-song connoisseur, Americana artist — but the singer, songwriter and fiddle player may be one of those rare cases in which a superb musician really does transcend genre. On her 2011 full-length, Paper Airplane, Krauss covered Richard Thompson’s “Dimming of the Day” in fine fashion, and also performed songs by Jackson Browne, Tim O’Brien and Peter Rowan. With her excellent band, Union Station, providing their own brand of subtle thrills, Paper Airplane was a very savvy singer-songwriter record with bluegrass overtones. She contributed a version of songwriter Ron Davies’ “Good Love After Bad” to this year’s full-length Unsung Hero: A Tribute to Ron Davies. Krauss hosts tonight’s event with fellow bluegrass musician Jerry Douglas, and the proceeds benefit the Americana Music Association.
