Alison Krauss’ new Windy City -- her first solo album of new material since 1999’s Forget About It -- debuts at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 with 38,000 units (36,000 in traditional album sales). In total, Windy City marks the country and bluegrass artist’s 10th charting effort: she’s charted four solo titles, a collaborative set with Robert Plant, and five with her band Union Station. Though Krauss has been releasing albums since 1985, she did not reach the all-genre Billboard 200 chart until 10 years later, when the retrospective Now That I’ve Found You: A Collection, entered the chart dated Feb. 25, 1995. (Her first album to visit the Top Country Albums chart was 1991’s I’ve Got That Old Feeling, which reached No. 61.)
On the Billboard 200, Krauss has now reached the top 10 four times -- with Windy City, Paper Airplane, with Union Station (No. 3 in 2011), Raising Sand, with Robert Plant (No. 2; 2007) and the solo best-of package, A Hundred Miles or More: A Collection (No. 10; 2007).
