2012 Grammy Winner:
• Best Bluegrass Album
• Best Engineered Album, Non-classical


Pressed at RTI on Deluxe 180 Gram Audiophile-Quality Vinyl! Mastered by Brad Blackwood at Euphonic Masters!

Alison Krauss' most recent triumph, the certified-platinum Raising Sand, her 2007 collaboration with Robert Plant and producer T Bone Burnett, notched up a total of six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year, bringing her unsurpassed total to 26. That mesmerizing modern-day masterpiece sets the stage for another stunner: Paper Airplane, the artist's first album of all-new recordings in partnership with her remarkably skillful and renowned band Union Station since 2004's Lonely Runs Both Ways.

The players are five distinct personalities who come together to from something truly unique as a band. Each bandmate has his own bustling career, but when these singular musicians come together, they're an airtight unit devoted to the process of making music together. Indeed, their connection is so close and deep that they've come to think of each other as family.

Produced by Krauss and Union Station, with studio legend Mike Shipley engineering and mixing, Paper Airplane contains 11 songs of poignancy and austere beauty, chosen with the impeccable taste and unerring intuition that have characterized her entire body of work, delivered by this world-class unit with an immediacy that goes beyond mere virtuosity.

"There's something Apollonian, something so clear, harmonious and restrained, about the genre-bridging music of Alison Krauss & Union Station that it's a wonder it could have sprung from an idiom as unvarnished and earthy as bluegrass." - The Washington Post

"...beautifully crafted, heartrending bluegrass-inflected songs filled with nimble-fingered fiddle work and Krauss' crystalline, whispery voice." - New York Press
