Grassers see Red at the CMAs

Last night at the CMA Awards on ABC, Alison Krauss, Sam Bush, Vince Gill and Edgar Meyer performed with country singer, Taylor Swift, in an acoustic arrangement of her current hit song, Red.

The best news to come out of it was hearing Alison Krauss in fine voice, apparently none the worse for whatever issues prevented her from singing at the Wide Open Bluegrass festival in late September.

Oh… and that Swift didn’t ask Alison and Vince to sing the “eh eh eds” with her on the chorus.


The track can be purchased from the ABC web site.

    No fear of Alan Jackson promoting his new Bluegrass CD, was there? Instead, one of the most amazing singers on the planet was relegated to back up vocalist for a pop teeny bopper.
