Millions know how unforgettable an Alison Krauss and Union Station performance can be. Through her performances on both the Oscars and the Grammys earlier this year, Alison Krauss has been seen by over 100 million television viewers in 2004. And the group's 2002 "Live" CD and 2003 Live DVD are both certified platinum, with the prior nearing double platinum status. Other recent live highlights include a headlining run on the T Bone Burnett-produced "Great High Mountain Tour" in the Spring of 2004, and a special performance at the Walt Disney Hall in LA in December 2003.
Alison Krauss and Union Station were the first non-classical musicians invited to play at the Hall, giving the touted venue its "Pop christening" according to the LA Times' Robert Hilburn. Robert Hilburn called the group's performance "enchanting" noting that Alison Krauss injected her songs with "conviction and intimacy," ultimately calling Union Station "a world class attraction."
