akLast month we alluded to the release of the new Alison Krauss DVD A Hundred Miles or More: Live From The Tracking Roomdue for release on November 11.

Here’s further news from Rounder Records and Alison Krauss website:
The DVD features Alison Krauss, one of the purest and most original voices in American music, performing songs from her critically acclaimed solo album by Rounder Records, A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection, with members of her highly-regarded band, Union Station, and special guest musicians. It also features memorable duets with country superstar Brad Paisley, legendary singer/songwriter James Taylor, British rocker John Waite, and an infectious take on Sawing on the Strings with one of Krauss’ longtime idols, Tony Rice, and musicians Sam Bush and Stuart Duncan joining Union Station members Barry Bales, Ron Block, Jerry Douglas, and Dan Tyminski. Other guest musicians featured on the DVD are Steve Cox, John Hobbs, and Greg Morrow.

Originally taped as a GAC television special, this DVD is set in a recording studio environment to re-create the making of many of the tracks featured on Krauss’ album, A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection. The DVD offers an intimate look at how Krauss works in the studio environment. One of the songs featured is Krauss’ single Simple Love, written by Sarah Siskind who also penned Goodbye Is All We Have. Guest musicians Gordon Mote (piano) and Abraham Laboriel Sr. (bass) join Krauss for this very special performance.

Krauss who has earned more Grammy awards – 21 in all – than any other female artist, talks about her successful musical career, her life’s journey and what she’s learned along the way.
