Alison Krauss And Union Station Featuring Jerry Douglas: National Summer Tour To Kick Off In June
Published June 7, 2007

Beginning on June 14, Alison Krauss and Union Station will perform in more than 40 cities throughout the U.S. this summer. The A Hundred Miles or More Tour, billed as "An Evening with Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas" will make stops in cities from coast to coast including Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York, Minneapolis and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Telluride, CO. (For information on tour dates, please visit our World Music Concerts section.)The tour will feature fan favorites and selected tracks from Krauss' new solo release, A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection (Rounder), which Billboard writes "is a must-have for anyone who appreciates that Krauss is this generation's best female vocalist period." The album encompasses Krauss' diverse career as a master vocalist, instrumentalist, collaborator and producer.

A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection debuted at #10 on Billboard's Top 200 and has sold more albums in its first week than any previous Krauss release. It includes 16 tracks, highlighting Krauss' career outside of her traditional releases with long time band Union Station. The album features Krauss' contributions to film soundtracks including the Oscar-nominated songs, "The Scarlet Tide" and "You Will Be My Ain True Love," from the motion picture Cold Mountain and "Down to the River to Pray" from the Grammy-winning soundtrack O Brother, Where Art Thou? Known for her collaborations, Krauss also includes several duets in the collection—"Whiskey Lullaby" with Brad Paisley, "How's the World Treating You" with James Taylor and "Missing You" with John Waite.

A Hundred Miles or More also debuts five new songs, all produced by Krauss—"You're Just a Country Boy," "Jacob's Dream," "Simple Love," "Lay Down Beside Me," (also a duet with Waite) and "Away Down the River." Her previous collection, 1995's break-out success, Now That I've Found You, has sold more than 2.5 million copies.
