Alison Krauss & Union Station- Paper Airplanes

Alison Krauss was a pretty big part of my childhood. I remember my dad and I playing her very first CD full blast on brisk, bright Las Vegas weekend mornings shortly after I moved to live with him. Alison had a really bad perm then and I actually think she looks younger now than she did then-- almost twenty years ago. 

I'm always really glad when she puts out a new album with Union Station and this time I'm super super especially glad because she's sort of quoting me with the title. (VOTE! in St Andrews is next weekend, too, by the way. Get your tickets here for Saturday & here for Sunday. )

I'm still listening to Alison Krauss twenty years later on a bright, brisk morning here on the Isle Skye. Hope you're having a great Sunday!


  1. i love every song on this album which is rare for anyone to say about any album. the vocals are great and the guitar and banjo is awesome. the lyrics of the songs are haunting as are the vocals which are well matched for each song.

  2. Yeah, it's pretty amazing that someone can do so many consistently great whole albums. Nice to see more Alison fans out there!! xx
