AKUS compilation CD selling well at Cracker Barrel

Alison Krauss & Union Station’s most recent CD release doesn’t contain any new recordings, though there are bonus video tracks included on the disk. Home on the Highways is a retrospective containing tracks from a number of different previously-released projects, and is available exclusively from Cracker Barrel. In addition to 11 audio tracks, the CD also contains video interviews with the band and an “impromptu jam session.”

The July 22 issue of Entertainment Weekly reports that Home on the Highways is selling well in the more than 500 Cracker Barrel locations in the US. You can pick one up at any Cracker Barrel restaurant, or order from their web site.
