The Robert Plant and Alison Krauss album "Raising Sand", produced by T Bone Burnett, has been certified platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for shipments in excess of a million copies in the United States. The Rounder Records album debuted at No 2 on the Billboard Top 200 chart following its release October 23, 2007, marking the highest chart position ever for the label. It remains inside the top 40 five months later.

Last month, Plant and Krauss were recipients of the 2007 Grammy Award for "Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals" for the track "Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)".

The Grammy Award was the first-ever for Robert Plant as a solo artist after numerous nominations, and the 21st for Alison Krauss.

The two musicians begin their "Raising Sand World Tour" April 19 in Louisville, KY. Dates have been set through July 1, with more July dates to be announced shortly.

Critics seemed to have liked it. I haven't heard anything off of it myself.

:sleeping: :sleeping: :sleeping:

In all fairness, I can't say it's all bad because I didnt get all the way through it - I didnt want to.

I'm suprised he got a Grammy for this and not for other, FAR BETTER solo work. I'm shocked to learn she got 21 awards for ANYthing. It's her voice on there that irritates me, which is the only thing that kept me awake past the first couple tracks.

His voice is still buttery smooth like no other - it doesnt matter what he's singing or whether I like the actual music or not, I love the sound of his voice.

The Associated Press reports that LED ZEPPELIN frontman Robert Plant won a CMT Award Monday night (April 14) for teaming up with Alison Krauss on the song "Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)". Plant said it was "peculiar" to be getting an award. He thanked his LED ZEPPELIN bandmembers for getting him through his teenage years and thanks Krauss for helping him get through his 50s.

The Pulse of Radio reports that Robert Plant and Alison Krauss recently wrapped up a few U.S. shows and are headed off to tour Europe in May. They'll return this summer to kick off another U.S. leg and are being joined onstage by producer and musician T-Bone Burnett. He tells The Pulse of Radio we can expect a variety of songs at the show, including some LED ZEPPELIN songs. "We're doing 'Black Dog'. I think we're doing some more obscure ones too. We're doing a couple of B-sides. We're doing 'The Battle of Evermore', which is just mind-blowing. And that's something that LED ZEPPELIN never did live. So it's a great chance to do it now with Alison singing the Sandy Denny part. And of course she just kills it."

Gary Graff of Billboard.com reports: Robert Plant and Alison Krauss are hoping to turn their platinum-certified, Grammy Award-winning "Raising Sand" into a going concern.

"I'm in no hurry to go anywhere," Plant told Billboard.com during a teleconference with reporters today (June 12). "I want to stay very close. This is a font of knowledge, and I'm sticking as close to it as I can."

Krauss concurred, "we're all having a wonderful time, and I hope and I think all three of us are hoping to continue this and that it go on and on." But she added that the duo's association shouldn't bring the curtain down on any of their other projects.

The three of us? Krauss, Plant... and Plant's ego perhaps? :lol:
