Alison Krauss and Robert Plant Head Out on Tour

February 13, 2008

In support of their album Raising Sand, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant are heading out on a world tour beginning in April. The CD combines both of their talents in a sound that I describe as Rock-a-billy (others disagree, but Gone, Gone, Gone did just win a Grammy - so I feel justified in enjoying it). T Bone Burnett, who produced the CD, will be joining the pair onstage. On a side note, Krauss' extensive tour without Union Station probably explains Adam Steffey's decision to leave Mountain Heart for the Dan Tyminski Band.

I don't know and havn't heard any one else but me feel like Allison is just a little out of her flow zone. I like the album, and I can't quite put a finger on it but theres just somthin thats making it sound a little off kilter. does any one else hear this or am i suffering senility or what?
