In 1973, he signed to Atlantic Records and put out Shotgun Willie, which veered into outlaw country, a start contrast from the mainstream Nashville sound and clean-cut country artists of the era. 1975’s Red Headed Stranger and 1978’s Stardust followed on Columbia Records, both garnering commercial and critical success. The ‘80s saw the release of No. 1 albums Honeysuckle Rose, Somewhere Over The Rainbow, Always On My Mind, and The Promiseland, as well as Nelson joining Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson in the country supergroup The Highwaymen, touring and releasing three studio albums between 1985 and 1995. Nelson continues to release a new album almost every year and delight ticket buys in live shows to this day. </span><br /><br /><span>Alison Krauss is largely responsible for keeping bluegrass music alive and well in the U.S., and she’s got the awards to prove it. The singer-songwriter has received 27 Grammy Awards, making her the most awarded female artist in all of Grammy history &#8211; not too shabby for 47 short years. Krauss is a nationwide favorite in concert and has been performing onstage since the early ‘90s and selling out tours across North America since the early 2000s. She loves taking the stage just as much as recording in the studio, and ticket holders get to hear her soulful, soothing soprano up close, in addition to seeing her expertly play the fiddle, piano and mandolin. </span><br /><br /><span>For more information, visit:</span><br /><span>www.willienelson.com</span><br /><span>www.alisonkrauss.com</span><br /><span>www.nationalshows2.com</span></p> 4000 Parnell Ave Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac
