Alison Krauss to release reminder of her Grammy-worthiness

It’s interesting to note that bluegrass bastion Alison Krauss has, to date, won a career total of 26 impressive Grammys — more than any other female artist. Her recent collaboration with Robert Plant, “Raising Sand,” in itself earned a whopping six.

Over the years, the fiddler has also partnered up with Phish, James Taylor, Dolly Parton, Bonnie Raitt, even Yo Yo Ma, and helped score soundtracks for the films “Cold Mountain” and “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” She’s become so creatively chameleonesque, actually, that folks might have forgotten her original sound.

But on April 12, Krauss and her backing band Union Station return to remind everyone with her rootsy new Rounder outing “Paper Airplane,” another contender for next year’s Grammys.

The track listing is: “Paper Airplane,” “Dustbowl Children,” “Lie Awake,” “Lay My Burden Down,” “My Love Follows You Where You Go,” “Dimming Of The Day,” “On The Outside Looking In,” “Miles To Go,” “Sinking Stone,” “Bonita And Bill Butler,” and “Opening Farewell.”
