ABOUT THE ARTIST
After her 2011 Grammy-winning and Billboard’s-topping album “Paper Airplane” rocked the Bluegrass charts, Krauss began to feel the tug of inspiration.
“Usually it’s just all songs first,” Krauss said in a press release. “It was the first time I’d ever not had songs picked out, and it was just about a person.” That person was veteran Nashville producer Buddy Cannon.
Cannon has written award-winning songs for artists such as George Strait, Glen Campbell and George Jones, as well as produced albums for Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and even Merle Haggard’s final solo album. He also just so happened to be the producer of Krauss’s newest album that she’s bringing to the Fraze.
What she and Buddy have created is an unusual and invigorating chimera – an album suffused with sadness that somehow rarely sounds that way, according to the Fraze’s press release. “It’s almost like you didn’t know it was sad,” Krauss said. “Because it doesn’t sound weak. It doesn’t have a pitiful part to it, where so many sad songs do. But these don’t. And I love that about it. I love that there’s strength underneath there.”
