Trace Adkins & Andrea Zonn singing “Ships”
Andrea Zonn remembers the first time she met Alison Krauss. She was ten and Alison was eight and the two were introduced at the Champaign Festival in Illinois. Growing up, the two tried to pick apart Emmylou Harris and Little River Band records during the Seventies.
“We’ve gotten in a lot of trouble over the years,” Zonn said with a sly laugh during her visit to the Buddy & Jim Show on Sirius XM Outlaw Country. On a day when Miller was recovering from a lack of sleep following a trip to San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Zonn came in to play songs from her new album Rise. It was released in late September on the independent label Compass Records which is owned and operated by Alison Brown and her husband. Zonn was accompanied on the show by guitarist and collaborator Tom Jutz.
