Bluegrass Fddler Alison Krauss Hits Grammy Jackpot



Bluegrass fiddler Alison Krauss, who walked away with an armful of Grammy Awards earlier this year (including Album of the Year for the O Brother, Where Art Thou soundtrack and Best Country Song for "The Lucky One") hit a milestone with those wins. The 13-time Grammy-winning Krauss has become the all-time top female country artist for Grammy Awards, just two shy of Aretha Franklin, the all-time female leader. Jazz artist and producer Quincy Jones is the all-time leading Grammy winner with 27 (composer and conductor Pierre Boulez has 24).
