Beginning at the tender age of five, Krauss was plucking away at a stringed instrument, briefly learning classical phrasing before turning her attentions to the time-honored tradition of bluegrass. Krauss’ talents did not go unnoticed and by the time she turned 12 years old she was playing with band members that would remain with her throughout their careers. Between 1985 and 1999 Krauss released four solo albums including her debut “Different Strokes” and follow ups “Too Late to Cry,” I’ve Got That Old Feeling” and “Forget About It,” the latter going Gold. The single “Stay” off “Forget About It” crossed genres to register on Billboard’s adult contemporary chart.
During this period Krauss collaborated with Suzy Bogguss and Crosby, Stills and Nash for a benefit album. Never far behind was Krauss’ dedicated band Union Station which she released three albums with, “Two Highways,” “Every Time You Say Goodbye” and “So Long So Wrong,” over the same 14 year interlude. Krauss also contributed singles to soundtracks from movies like “O Brother Where Art Thou?,” “Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood,” “Cold Mountain” and “Paper Clips.” With awards and accolades continuing to pour in, Krauss put out “New Favorite,” “Lonely Runs Both Ways” and “Paper Airplane” with Union Station as well as continued working with high rollers like Brad Paisley, Robert Plant and Shania Twain.
