Alison Krauss was slated for greatness at an early age. At 12, the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America named her Most Promising Fiddler in the Midwest; just two years later, in 1985, she signed to Rounder Records. But even those honors barely foretold the success Krauss would eventually enjoy, breaking out of the bluegrass scene to become a bona-fide pop star with 26 Grammys to her name. Krauss' biggest record to date has been 2007's Raising Sand, which might have something to do with the participation of a certain Robert Plant. Produced by T-Bone Burnett, the unlikely project turned out to be a natural pairing, with the singers' voices hanging sweetly together over an easy, supple backdrop of rootsy Americana. The album, a critical and commercial success, followed shortly after A Hundred Miles or More, a collection of Krauss' collaborations with artists like Brad Paisley, James Taylor and Sting. Beyond singing and songwriting, Krauss also produces other artists' records, such as Alan Jackson's acclaimed 2006 release, Like Red on a Rose.
