Earlier today, singer-songwriter Alison Krauss announced dates of a spring tour that includes an April 29 stop at Connor Palace. The tour supports her latest album, Windy City, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums and Top Bluegrass Albums charts and received two Grammy nominations.

Country songwriter and producer Buddy Cannon, someone Krauss listened to while growing up, helmed the project.

“Buddy sang harmonies on everything back then,” Krauss says in a press release about the album and 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.”

Tickets to the Connor Palace show go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.
