Over the past 15 years, Alison Krauss + Union Station have helped bluegrass grow from a regional art form to a nationwide sensation. New Favorite, their newest collection, is a gem: a set of artful, soulful songs that will appeal not only to long term fans, but also to those who recently discovered the band through the hit movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?

Continuing in the longstanding tradition of alternating Alison Krauss solo albums with Alison Krauss + Union Station collaborations, New Favorite, the follow-up to 1999's Forget About It, is a full-band effort, featuring, along with Krauss's own virtuoso fiddling and exquisite vocals, Dan Tyminski (the singing voice of George Clooney in the movie) on guitar, mandolin, and two lead vocals, Ron Block on banjo, guitar and vocals, Jerry Douglas on Dobro, and Barry Bales on bass and vocals. The result is a masterful blend of voices and instruments, of styles and of souls. With 13 tracks of hard-driving bluegrass, introspective ballads, and everything in-between, New Favorite stands as the definitive Alison Krauss + Union Station album.

Produced by Alison Krauss & Union Station.

Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Alison Kraus & Union Station: Alison Krauss (vocals, fiddle, viola); Ron Block (vocals, guitar, banjo); Dan Tyminski (vocals, guitar, mandolin); Barry Bales (vocals, bass); Jerry Douglas (dobro).
Muze PNote Additional personnel includes: Larry Atamanuik (drums, percussion).
Muze PNote Recorded at Seventeen Grand Recording, Nashville, Tennessee.
Muze PNote NEW FAVORITE won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album. "The Lucky One" won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by A Duo Or Group With Vocal and for Best Country Song.
Muze PNote NEW FAVORITE finds Alison Krauss & Union Station continuing to solidify the bridge between the worlds of pop and bluegrass that they helped forge in the '90s. Krauss's crystalline vocals continue to induce goosebumps and bring to mind a young Dolly Parton on the delicate ballads "I'm Gone," "Crazy Faith," and "Momma Cried" along with more traditional-sounding fare like the high lonesome "Take Me For Longing." With its musical democracy still intact, Union Station also delights with new member Jerry Douglas' fleet-fingered instrumental workout "Choctaw Hayride" and a dark-hued interpretation of the traditional "The Boy Who Wouldn't Hoe Corn" delivered by Dan Tyminski's supple tenor. (Tyminski's vocals may strike a recognizable note as his voice replaced George Clooney's on "I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow," a musical centerpiece on the O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? soundtrack).
Muze PNote Once again Krauss takes a non-traditional bluegrass approach towards picking material. Among the artists interpreted are legendary country-folk banjo player Dock Boggs ("Bright Sunny South"), '70s singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg ("Stars"), fellow New Traditionalists Gillian Welch and David Rawlings (the title track), and Rounder labelmate Robert Lee Castleman ("Let Me Touch You For Awhile," "The Lucky One").

Producer: Alison Krauss; Union Station

Engineer: Gary Paczosa
