A Conversation with Ron Block of Alison Krauss & Union Station

In this episode of Enjoy the Journey, I’m excited to share a conversation I had with the well-known musician, Ron Block.

Ron Block is an American banjo player, guitarist, and singer-songwriter, best known as a member of the bluegrass band Alison Krauss & Union Station. He has won 14 Grammy Awards, 6 International Bluegrass Music Awards, a Country Music Association Award, and a Gospel Music Association Dove Award (Source: Wikipedia).

In October 1991, Ron Block joined Alison Krauss and Union Station, with members Barry Bales, Tim Stafford, and Adam Steffey. The following year, the group recorded the album Every Time You Say Goodbye. Now considered a modern bluegrass classic, the album earned a 1993 Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album, the first of an astounding 14 Grammys Block would take home thus far. Other early highlights of Block’s tenure with AKUS include touring with megastar Garth Brooks, and, of course, the O Brother, Where Art Thou phenomenon, which would put the banjo player on the big screen and also on concert stages with the Down from the Mountain Tour, featuring performers from the O Brother soundtrack. In 2009, the group performed for the President of the United States at the White House. With more than 20 years of touring as part of Union Station, Block most recently went “on the road again” with the legendary Willie Nelson for a 2014-15 tour that continued to expand the group’s diverse and enthusiastic audience (Source: https://ronblock.com).

This deep and insightful conversation with Ron covers everything from our identity in Christ, 2020 vision, elements of a healthy devotional life, C.S. Lewis, O’ Brother, Where Art Thou, sex, and it even contains a Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference.
