Alison Krauss and Union Station - Lonely Runs Both Ways - Rounder

Lonely Runs Both Ways is the first studio album in three years from Alison Krauss and Union Station: Krauss (fiddle and vocals), Dan Tyminski (guitar and vocals), Barry Bales (bass and vocals), Ron Block (banjo, guitar, and vocals), and Jerry Douglas (dobro).

Produced by the band and recorded in Nashville, Lonely Runs Both Ways features songs by some of their favorite writers, including Robert Lee Castleman, Sidney and Suzanne Cox, and Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, Mindy Smith, Del McCoury, and Woody Guthrie. Jerry Douglas contributes another sterling instrumental, Ron Block offers two gospel songs, including "A Living Prayer", and Krauss herself is a co-writer on "This Sad Song.". Lonely continues the band's long-time collaboration with engineer Gary Paczosa. And as with previous albums, Krauss shares lead vocals with Dan Tyminski (who sings on three tracks) and Ron Block (who sings on one).

Just 14 years old in 1985 when she first signed with Rounder Records, Krauss and her band continue to make sweet, beautiful roots music well deserving of the critical and popular acclaim Krauss has received over the years.
