The Lucky One (Alison Krauss)

Alison Krauss - Th...

Tonight is the 50th Grammy Awards, so it seems fitting that I would post something on my episodic blog. Why Alison Krauss? Because she has won more Grammys than any other female. Period. Shocking, isn't it?

Here's the rundown on her achievements:
  • A total of 20 Grammys
  • Her first win was 18 years ago - 1990 - for the best bluegrass song
  • Every award she has won has been in the Country, Bluegrass or Folk category with the exception of being part of the Album of the Year team for "Oh Brother Where Art Thou's" soundtrack
  • She is nominated tonight for Best Collaboration (with Robert Plant) for a song from their very cool album Raising Sand AND for Best Female Country Performance.
She is a Renaissance woman for sure.

It's 8pm. Time to watch to see if the "lucky one" wins again.

UPDATE: Alison Krauss and Robert Plant won the 2007 grammy for "Gone, Gone, Gone." The 2007 Grammy program was horrible.
