Alison Krauss has been recording bluegrass, country, and pop since she was a teenager, and her 1995 compilation, Now That I’ve Found You: A Collection, first exposed her to a mass audience years before her appearance on the smash soundtrack to the Coen brothers’ movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?

For millions of country fans, including my mother, Now That I’ve Found You introduced them to one of the most beautiful voices of the last generation.
