Alison Krauss' voice is so pure and soft, yet strong. When her voice combines with the musical quality of Union Station, bluegrass music never sounded so good. I also love the fact that the band members do lead vocals. You can also listen to a few performances by them on the soundtrack of "O Brother Where Art Thou" and one song on "Cold Mountain."
Lester Flatt—one of the reasons bluegrass music is successful today There are few guitarist/lead singers who are better known in bluegrass music than Lester Raymond Flatt—probably none. His long career with Earl Scruggs and earlier with Bill Monroe made him a legend. And his strong rhythm guitar playing helped make bluegrass music the identifiable entity that it is.
