Description
Alison Krauss and Union Station (Dan Tyminski, Ron Block, Barry Bales, and Jerry Douglas) are crossover stars and superlative goodwill ambassadors for modern bluegrass. Every recording offers so much to savor, and this one is no exception. The title track was written by Robert Lee Castleman (whom Krauss calls "a center of our recordings for the past 12 to 15 years"). Another familiar name is Sidney Cox, who contributed "Bonita and Bill Butler." Tyminski's richly resonant voice is heard on "Dust Bowl Children" by Peter Rowan, while other highlights include "Lie Awake" (by Krauss's brother Viktor and Angel Snow) and a rare bluegrass cover of Richard Thompson's "Dimming of the Day." At the end of the day, however, it's Krauss's honeyed soprano that attests to the 13 Grammys lined up at home—and the likelihood of a great many more.

"Unlike her country counterparts such as Shania Twain and Faith Hill, Krauss relies heavily on her tradition, through instrumentation choices such as steel guitar, fiddle, banjo, and mandolins, and her recordings are produced in such a way that the music's warmth and sincerity easily shine through."—Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Popular Musicians
