Allison Krauss and Robert Plant - Raising Sand

If you are looking for some new music to listen to then I would highly recommend this new album. Robert Plant is the former front man from Led Zeppelin and Allison Krauss is an amazing bluegrass singer. they are not two people you would usually think of playing music together, but man am I happy they did it. This album gets better and better each time I listen to it. Do yourself a favor and pick it up.

No, you wouldn't expect those two to be on the same album.
I like Allison Krause's voice, but was never much of a fan of Plant's solo stuff.

Thanks for the tip GB. I love Allison Krauss. Haven't heard anything of Plant's in a long while. Sounds like an interesting mix.

I was never crazy about his solo stuff either. This is a great change though. His voice takes on a much softer quality.

I think only one of the songs on the album was written by Plant. All the others are covers.
