Alison Krauss, whose recent solo LP, Windy City topped the country and bluegrass charts, will tour the U.S. this fall with English singer-songwriter David Gray, the Grammy-nominated performer who broke through in the States in 2000 with the hit single, "Babylon." The 21-city co-headlining tour kicks off on September 18th in Hershey, Pennsylvania, wrapping in Berkeley, California, the following month.

On October 1st, the trek begins a two-night stand at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, with dates at such venerable venues as New York's Radio City Music Hall and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles also on the itinerary.

Beginning her ascent to stardom in her early teens with music that, while rooted in bluegrass and country, has also encompassed pop, rock and classical, Krauss recently secured a spot on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 Greatest Country Artists of All Time. As a solo artist and in collaboration with her band, Union Station, as well as in other musical configurations – including the multi-Grammy-winning 2007 LP Raising Sand with Robert Plant – she has earned a record-setting 27 Grammys, becoming the most awarded female artist in Grammy history.

A veteran of folk-rock who has also incorporated elements of electronic music into his body of work, Gray's most recent studio LP is 2014's Mutineers. A new album is set for release in 2018. Maintaining a relentless touring schedule since 1993, Gray scored his first Number One album in the U.K. with White Ladder. The 1998 album was re-released in 2000 on ATO Records, the label founded by Dave Matthews, with whom Gray toured. It went on to achieve platinum-selling status in the States on the strength of "Babylon." To date, Gray has released 10 studio albums.
