Mom came to town Tuesday night and we went to the Alison Krauss and Union Station concert. If you have ever heard her sing you know that she has one of the most beautiful voices ever. I have been to a lot of concerts, well over 100 probably closer to 200, but who is counting. I have never been to a concert where the singer sounds more polished and beautiful in person than on an album. Ms. Krauss has an angelic voice and that comes across beautifully on her recording, but in person it is just mesmerizing. If you ever have a chance to see her live, and you appreciate music, you will not regret her performance, or that of Union Station. They are a fun group of musicians. They know how to make an audience feel like they are part of the experience instead of just spectators.
