Skip to comments.(VANITY) Does anyone know the politics of Allison Krauss and the Union Station?

Please spare me the lectures, but I am thinking about taking my wife (who is a fan) to their concert next month in Columbia, SC, and want to know whether I can ethically support them or not. I do not willingly give my $$$ to libs if I can help it. Thanks in advance.
She sure sings sweet.
All I know is that she plays and sings circles around Ashcroft.
We have worked with her and she has been to our church. She is the real deal. Go and enjoy her concert. It will be wonderful.
Thanks for the heads up. If I can get half decent tickets, I hope to go also.
I doubt you would ever find a Lib that would listen to Allison Krauss and Union Station. Too much Gospel themed music for them ;) Think you should be fine.
Listening to Ricky Skaggs right now and I don't want to know his politics.
Best voice in country.
Sings like an angel
If someone is a liberal or gay or anything else in their personal lives (and make it a point to keep it personal)...why should we care?
Enjoy the work they do and forget about the other crap.
She "shuts up and sings." As long as she's not spouting her opinions, I'll be happy to appreciate her considerable talent.
I received my tickets in the mail today for the concert in Melbourne, FL on Feb. 4. Get 'em if you can.
I'm a liberal, and I listen to Alison Krauss on a semi-regular basis. Her voice defies party lines.
Honestly, though, if the music makes you happy, listen to it. The money is going to go through her, her agent, her record company, the owner of the venue, the workers at the venue, the roadies on the tour. So many people. Some of it will go to "liberal" causes at some point. Just like plenty of the money that comes in from a Springsteen concert ends up going toward conservative causes. Her act isn't political (as far as I know, anyways), so just go, enjoy, and don't worry about it.
If they shut up and sing, I would say "Have a great time"
I would go if they were appearing near me.
My wife and I would go to that Columbia show except that we just found out today that I got a job I applied for up in Richmond and I start January 10...so no AKUS at the Township for us. :/ It's too bad, I'd LOVE to see them live. They are a simply amazing collection of musicians, and not to mention Alison's as easy on the eyes as she is on the ears. :)
Go, and enjoy the show, just don't get mugged outside the Township. That's not the best neighborhood.
I have seen her in concert. It's the only concert I've gone to in probably 15 years. It was wonderful! Well worth the money, she never mentioned politics once.
Congrats on the job! Does that mean we won't be seeing you at Charlotte art shows next fall :-( ?
I think Linda Ronstadt is a good example of why their politics matter. I don't want a performer bashing my politics after I paid them money to be entertained.
