Alison Krauss Tour Dates 2018 Announced


Includes Co-Headlining dates with Willie Nelson & Family

This morning, Alison Krauss announces her extensive 50-date tour which will begin on May 16th in Tulsa, OK.

The tour will find the accomplished bluegrass-country singer and musician performing headlining dates in cities including Memphis, Toronto, Austin, & New Orleans. Tickets for most dates will go on sale here on April 6th at 10 AM Local Time.

 The first seven dates on this tour will be co-headlining shows with Willie Nelson and Family, and the two will share the stage for a total of 17 dates throughout the summer. Tickets for the May co-headlining dates are on sale now, and most newly announced dates with Nelson will go on sale here on April 6th at 10 AM Local Time, with the exception of Saratoga (4/9, 10AM Local Time), and San Diego (4/7,10AM Local Time).

Windy City, her latest solo album, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums and Top Bluegrass Albums charts and received two Grammy nominations. The album was produced by Buddy Cannon, whose vocal harmonies Krauss grew up listening to and were the soundtrack to her childhood. "Buddy sang harmonies on everything back then," Krauss says. She also reveals of Cannon, "I don't do something unless I feel like I'm called to do it. That's what I felt like, so I honored it. It's like the same feeling of when you know something is right musically, with a song or a batch of songs - the same feeling, but this was attached to a person instead of a batch of songs."
Born in Champaign, Illinois, Alison Krauss grew up listening to everything from folk to opera to pop and rock music, but quickly fell in love with bluegrass when she began playing fiddle at the age of five. Shortly after, Krauss began entering fiddle contests. At the age of 14, Rounder Records signed her to her first record deal and she went on to release her debut solo album two years later. The accomplished bluegrass musician became a member of the Grand Ole Opry at age 21.
Since 1985, Krauss has released 14 albums including five solo, seven with her longtime band and musical collaborators Union Station, and the Robert Plant collaboration Raising Sand, which was certified platinum and won five Grammys, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. She's sold more than 12 million records to date, and her honors include 27 Grammys, nine Country Music Association awards, 14 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards and two Gospel Music Association awards.
