Last night Plant and Krauss headlined CMT Soundstage. All I can say is WOW! Besides performing songs from 'Raising Sand' they did a few Led Zep songs. Who knew that 'When the Levee Breaks' and 'Black Dog' would fit right in with a banjo and fiddle?
I got that one for Christmas. I love it... such a different feel from a lot of what I listen to.
