Earlier today, singer-songwriter Alison Krauss announced the dates of an extensive 50-date tour that begins next month and swings into town in the fall for a show at the Akron Civic Theatre
on Sept. 11.
The tour supports her latest effort, Windy City
. The album debuted at the top of the Billboard Country Album and Bluegrass Albums charts.
Veteran songwriter Buddy Cannon produced the disc.
“Buddy sang harmonies on everything back [when I was growing up],” Krauss says in a press release announcing the tour. “I don’t do something unless I feel like I’m called to do it. That’s what I felt like, so I honored it. It’s like the same feeling of when you know something is right musically, with a song or a batch of songs —the same feeling, but this was attached to a person instead of a batch of songs.”
A fan club presale begins at 10 a.m. tomorrow, and tickets to the general public go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.
