Union Station man Ron Block to release second solo album

SINGER, songwriter, guitarist and banjo player Ron Block will have his second solo album 'DoorWay' released by Rounder Records in June. Block's songs have been recorded by such artists as The Cox Family, Michael W Smith and Randy Travis while he has received 13 Grammy Awards for his work with Alison Krauss And Union Station. In 2006 Block received a Dove Award for Best Recorded Song Of The Year for "A Living Prayer" from Alison Krauss And Union Station's 'Lonely Runs Both Ways' album. Said Block about his latest album, "For the past several years in my time off form Alison Krauss And Union Station I've focussed my attention on family, but lately I've felt an inner prompting to do more solo work. 'DoorWay' is the beginning of a heightened output of solo recordings. I'm glad to be back at it' I've got a fresh perspective, deeper lyrics and a better grasp on the music itself."
