A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection


Bluegrass/country artist Allison Krauss released a solo hits album, A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection, on April 3 with her longtime label Rounder Records. The album reflects her diverse career in bluegrass music as a master vocalist, instrumentalist, collaborator, and producer. On A Hundred Miles Krauss steps away from tradition, leaving behind longtime band Union Station to showcase duets with artists such as John Waite, Brad Paisley, and James Taylor. The album also includes her Oscar nominated songs from the movies Cold Mountain and “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”, along with five new tracks that feature Krauss as a producer.

Since recording her first bluegrass album at the age of 16, Krauss has released eleven albums and earned 20 Grammy Awards - more than any other female artist - as well as countless Country Music Association Awards and International Bluegrass Awards.

Krauss’ voice can only be described as angelic. Her songs of lost love sound like sweet lullaby-stories you might listen to on a rainy day while curled up in a blanket. The album will be available in stores or through her website.
