Country star Alison Krauss tops bluegrass nominees

I don't think anyone should be surprised that Alison Krauss and her band Union Station are the top nominees at the upcoming International Bluegrass Music Association awards. They garnered 14 nominations for everything from Entertainer of the Year to Song of the Year.

While there may be a number of bluegrass performers around, none have the name recognition or unique sound that Alison and Union Station have put together. Her voice is other-worldly, and they surround it with great musicianship. Can you even name one other bluegrass performer? Probably not...

In order to have some truth in advertising, they should probably just rename the Bluegrass Awards Show this year to 'Alison Krauss and Some Other Folks You Probably Haven't Heard Of.'

Congrats to Alison and Union Station...
