alison KraussThis morning, Alison Krauss announced her 50-date tour which will kick off on May 16th in Tulsa, OK and will include headlining cities Memphis, Toronto, Austin, and New Orleans.  Fans can purchase tickets for most dates here on April 6th at 10 AM Local Time, with the exception of Pittsburgh (4/13, 10AM Local Time), Selbyville (4/16, 10AM Local Time), South Bend (4/20,10AM Local Time), and Milwaukee (4/6, 12PM Local Time). The first seven dates on this tour will be co-headlining shows with Willie Nelson and Family, and the two will continue to 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).

Krauss’ latest album, Windy City, 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.”
