The sweet voice of Alison Krauss filled the Benedum Center Friday night backed by her team of Union Station musicians.

The country and bluegrass star drew a few numbers from her latest Windy City album, like "River in the Rain" and "Gentle On My Mind."

Of course, fans crave every opportunity to sing along to "Down to the River to Pray," boosted by the 2000 crime comedy film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and Krauss delivered on queue, beautifully.

And this one:

A little bluegrass to kick off the summer. #alisonkraussandunionstation

Willie Nelson is joining Krauss for part of the tour but is skipping all the June shows and was not in Pittsburgh.

Awesome show! #alisonkrauss #fridaynightinpittsburgh

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
