Learn more about The 90 Year Gala featuring Alison Krauss .
Born in Champaign, Illinois, Alison Krauss grew up listening to everything from folk to opera to pop and rock music, but quickly fell in love with bluegrass when she began playing fiddle at the age of five. Shortly after, Krauss began entering fiddle contests. At the age of 14, Rounder Records signed her to her first record deal and she went on to release her debut solo album two years later. The accomplished bluegrass musician became a member of the Grand Ole Opry at age 21.
Since 1985, Krauss has released 14 albums including five solo, seven with her longtime band and musical collaborators Union Station, and the Robert Plant collaboration Raising Sand, which was certified platinum and won five Grammys, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. She’s sold more than 12 million records to date, and her honors include 27 Grammys, nine Country Music Association awards, 14 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards and two Gospel Music Association awards.
On Sunday, September 30, we will welcome Alison Krauss, the most awarded singer and the most awarded female artist in Grammy history, to the Tennessee stage for our 90 Year Gala, an event to celebrate this milestone and help us raise money to maintain, operate, and preserve the Official State Theatre of Tennessee and open its doors for free community programs so that everyone can experience its magic.
