When I think about bluegrass/country crossovers, Alison Krauss is a singers I think of immediately. She not only has a solo career, but she is the main part of Alison Krauss and Union Station (AKUS). She began her solo career in 1985 and in 1987 her “Too Late To Cry” album was released. Then, a little time later, she joined Union Station, releasing an album with the band in 1989 called “Two Highways.” Currently, AKUS is made up of Alison Krauss, Jerry Douglas, Dan Tyminski, Ron Block and Barry Bales. They have a great bluegrass sound and they have the capability to crossover to country. And, I have seen them in concert three times–they're great live, too! I find them to be an all around great musical group. So, today, I'd like to share with you my Top 5 Favorite Alison Krauss and Union Station Songs.

"Forget About It"


 
 

One thing that is undeniable about Alison Krauss is that she has one of the most beautiful voices in country music and bluegrass music. And, this song, Forget About It, definitely highlights the beauty in her voice.

"New Favorite"


 
 

This is the title song off of AKUS's "New Favorite" album. Not only is the song amazing, "New Favorite" is an amazing album. According to Wikipedia, "At the 44th Grammy Awards, New Favorite would go on to win the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album."

"Unionhouse Branch"

 
 

I love instrumental bluegrass songs. And, here's one of my favorites from AKUS. This song is from their "Lonely Runs Both Ways" album from 2004.

"Rain, Please Go Away"


 
 

Here's Dan Tyminski singing Rain, Please Go Away. Now, something you might not know about Dan is that his voice was dubbed over George Clooney's in the scene where George's character was singing "Man of Constant Sorrow" in the 2000 film 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?'

"When You Say Nothing At All"


 
 

Here it is at number one--When You Say Nothing At All. Originally performed by Keith Whitley in the late 80s, Alison Krauss's "version became her first solo top-10 country hit in 1995," according to Wikipedia. Also, "Krauss, already a veteran bluegrass fiddler and vocalist at age 23, recorded "When You Say Nothing at All" with her group, Union Station, in 1994 for a tribute album to Whitley," again, according to Wikipeda.
