This woman. I can’t fucking deal with her existence.
Heads up, Children’s Wishing Well is offering Alison’s new song for free (“Help Me” from the CD of music written by kids at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt) if you subscribe to their mailing list!
There is also a small tidbit about the song Alison recorded:
Help Me, part of the CD “Everybody Has a Story“, was written by cancer survivor Amy Overton, who has endured 10 major open-heart surgeries and more than 60 heart catheterizations. Now age 23, Amy is thankful that music continues to help her through medical issues.
The first song that I ever fell in love with from Alison Krauss & Union Station was Take Me For Longing from their Live (2002) release. The only thing is that when Alison sang, “I’m not asking your heart to believe me,” I was 100% certain that she was singing, “I’m not asking your holler to believe me,” which I so totally prefer, because I absolutely love the image of this dude’s entire holler congregating and being like, “Son, we don’t believe that bitch for a second.”
I’m sorry but I had to put this on FYAK because every time I remember it I die laughing all over again.
Pretty pretty brunette baby!Alison wearing bleach-stained black jeans. This, friends, is why I cannot be bothered to dress up for AKUS concerts.
It’s fairly easy to distinguish when a picture was taken in the 2000’s solely based on Alison’s hairstyle, because it has changed every year. However, Alison’s hair did all kinds of crazy shit in the 90’s due to Aquanet and the absence of one Paige Simmons. This has rendered such dating methods as ineffective, so, we shall call upon a vast knowledge of trivial facts about this band to determine that these were taken in either 1992 or 1993, because John Bowman is there on guitar instead of Dan or Tim. John was only in the band for something like 15 months, and now everybody confuses him for Dan when engaging in Youtube debates about when videos were filmed. The moral of this story is that, if you ever find yourself in one of these debates, aside from the obvious fact that John is not Dan and Dan is not John, remember that even though Dan was recruited before John, he went back to the Lonesome River Band to finish the record they had started and then came back later.
Pandora just suggested Queen because I was listening to AKUS. I am not sure how to feel about this. Happy? Or confused?
ETA by Allie: Because it knows Alison is the motherfucking queen, of course. /lame pun
Re: The personal AK pictures that popped up in the tag.
For those who don’t know where they came from, they originated on John Waite’s MySpace but Alison had them taken down because she doesn’t want them on the internet. Everybody has seen them but nobody really posts them anymore since Alison wanted them removed from the internet.
It’s your choice. I simply am just telling the story of those pictures for those who may not know and who may want to do something differently upon learning this.
Just a reminder that FYAK’s policy on these pictures is that we don’t post them and any reblogs/posts of these pictures to FYAK will be deleted.
my friends and i were trying to compile a list of the best country music videos. don’t know how the conversation ended up there, but it did. only trouble was that we couldn’t name any. we kept coming up with bad ones. country music is made up of some of the worst cheesiest low quality videos. we thought of this one though, best moment:
i wish i had my friend’s videos. there’s this cmt thing alison did where she talks about her music videos or something like that? can’t remember, but she laughs at this music video and the one for “i’ve got that old feeling” this part in particular:
she goes “why didn’t anybody tell me to suck in my gut?” lol
anyway, we only came up with two videos that we considered worthy quality music videos: alison krauss & union station’s “the lucky one” and lorrie morgan’s “i guess you had to be there.” there was another one… can’t remember. anyways, what country music lacks in quality music videos they make up by making quality music and that’s all that matters.
‘kay i’ll stop filling the alison krauss tag with my garbage …
Not garbage. This is actually one of the best posts we’ve had on FYAK.
i’ve never been about invading a singer’s personal space and taking pictures with them or asking for autographs and all of that shit… but i’m tempted to go up to alison krauss and ask her to sign this for me, just to see her reaction (assuming it’s easy to meet her, but no). i feel she would laugh, and that in turn would make me happy. lol
Please do this.
Dat AKUS hustle.
