    That’s funny! My dog is scared of loud noises and Allison Krauss helps calm him down during t-storms. That voice is pure magic.

    Alison is my husbands absolute favorite singer so he listens to her all the time. Of course now my 2 yr old and 4 yr old have come to love her voice also. Everytime Alison goes on tour we have our one big splurge and go see her. Worth the money everytime.

    Alison Krauss! That child is going to be somebody. She actually has a duet album with Robert Plant (from Led Zeppelin) coming out next month. Should be an interesting collaboration.
