MusiCares is typically not televised or recorded, but is reviewed in detail each year by UT San Diego (our coverage of the Paul McCartney tribute will run Feb. 11 at: utsandiego.com/news/night-and-day/music-nightlife/)
That sucks I looked into going since I'm in the LA area, and I guess it's a sponsored event type thing, and the cheapest price to get in is $1500. That's a bit out of my budget, lol. And I think it's invitation only and you need to be on some list, anyway. I really hope we do get to see this though.
I hope this means she'll be attending the Grammys a couple days later in LA as well. I'm trying to get tickets to the red carpet to that, so cross your fingers for me you guys! ;D
(Though with my luck, I'll somehow be able to attend and of course Alison won't attend, or if she does, she'll skip the red carpet lol)
I think that the MusicCares concerts are sometimes recorded and DVDs issued; James Taylor, Neil Young,....and sometimes not.
That said, I noticed that Jerry Douglas is performing in the UK with the Transatlantic Sessions Tour on February 9. Perhaps he is immune to jet lag, but I truly hope he will be performing with AK or AKUS on February 10 in L.A.

Some highlights: Diana Krall and James Taylor — he sang “Yesterday” while she played piano, then they switched and she did “For No One” while he played guitar. Rock legend Duane Eddy played an instrumental guitar version of “And I Love Her” that was like poetry. Tony Bennett remade “Here, There and Everywhere.” I loved Allison Krauss’s group doing “No More Lonely Nights.” Neil Young and Crazy Horse just ripped through “I Saw Her Standing There.”
Pictures on Wireimage (just search her name, there are multiple albums) and Gettyimages, as well as video from the red carpet on Gettyimages (video one and two).
Also, because I found this funny:
Alison Krauss & Union Station, plus Jerry Douglas, brought creamy harmonies and bluegrass shades to an acoustic No More Lonely Nights, performed on a rotating satellite stage. (In rehearsal, Krauss quipped, "What are we, rotisserie chicken?")
American Idol judge Randy Jackson was particularly impressed by the performances of Neil Young and Crazy Horse ("I Saw Her Standing There") and Alison Krauss and Union Station ("No More Lonely Nights").
