In 1985 Alison Krauss made her recording debut at 14. Since then she’s sold more than 12 million albums and won 26 Grammy awards, the most for any female recording artist in Grammy history. She and her band Union Station helped bring bluegrass to a pop audience in the ’90s, and her platinum-selling 1995 compilation, “Now That I’ve Found You,” catapulted her into mainstream star status. Krauss has worked with some of the biggest names in popular music, including James Taylor, Phish, Dolly Parton, Yo Yo Ma and Bonnie Raitt. Krauss’ latest, 2011’s “Paper Airplane” — her first since 2007’s Grammy-winning collaboration with Robert Plant — debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums and Bluegrass Albums charts and hit No. 3 on the Top Album chart. Alison Krauss and Union Station will perform at the Landmark Theater on Sunday, April 15, at 7:30 p.m. $51-$61. 800-514-3849.
