Rounder just released Rounder Records' 40th Anniversary Concert, an album of the concert that celebrated the label's 40 years in the music industry. Recorded in October 2009 at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry, the concert will also be presented as a PBS television special that will begin airing on the network in this month and released on DVD in May.

The event is a superb exhibition of Rounder's diverse roster, and features Grammy winning Rounder artists Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Bela Fleck, and Irma Thomas along with musical host Minnie Driver, and special guests Nathan & The Zydeco Cha Chas and Jazz/R&B pianist, Henry Butler. The CD will include performances by these artists as well as select performances from Steve Martin's show at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, from Alison Krauss and Robert Plant's 2008 CMT “Crossroads" special, and from Madeleine Peyroux's 2009 concert in Los Angeles.

The event was filmed by High Five Entertainment, and a portion of the ticket proceeds were donated to NARAS' Grammy in the Schools Programs to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of recorded music to American culture. The Grammy Foundation influences the lives of young people by opening the windows of opportunity that music can provide for their futures.
