After sharing vocal duties for a duet on Nelson’s latest album, “To All The Girls …,” the country outlaw and Alison Krauss will be co-headlining on highly anticipated during a 35-city U.S. tour this spring and summer.
The trek marks the first time the two acts have shared the stage together, according to Pollstar. Krauss will be joined by Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas. As usual, Nelson is hitting the road with his long-time touring and recording group, the Family.
Nelson was busy last year thanks to the release of two albums. In addition to “To All The Girls …,” he put out “Let’s Face the Music and Dance”, which features Nelson and Family’s take on pop, jazz, rock and country standards. “To All The Girls …” is a collection of duets with female singers including Dolly Parton, Miranda Lambert, Rosanne Cash, Sheryl Crow, Wynonna Judd, Carrie Underwood, Norah Jones and more.
Alison Krauss and Union Station’s most recent LP is 2011’s “Paper Airplane.” The album is Krauss’ 14th and her first release with Union Station since “Lonely Runs Both Ways” in 2004.
