Robert Plant & Alison Krauss

Alison Krauss helped bring bluegrass to a new audience in the '90s. Blending bluegrass with folk, Krauss was instantly acclaimed from the start of her career, but it wasn't until her platinum-selling 1995 compilation Now That I've Found You that she became a mainstream star. Between her 1987 debut Too Late to Cry and Now That I've Found You, she matured from a child prodigy to a versatile, ambitious, and diverse musician and, in the process, made some of the freshest bluegrass of the late '80s and early '90s.

When she was five years old, Krauss began playing the violin, taking classical lessons. She soon tired of the regimen of classical playing and began performing country and bluegrass licks. At the age of eight, she began entering talent contests in and around her native Champaign, IL. Two years later, she had her own band. In 1983, when she was 12 years old, she won the Illinois State Fiddle Championship and the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass in America named her the Most Promising Fiddler in the Midwest. In 1985, Krauss made her recording debut on an album, playing on a record made by her brother Viktor, Jim Hoiles, and Bruce Weiss. The album was called Different Strokes and appeared on the independent Fiddle Tunes label. Later that year, she signed to Rounder Records. She was 14 years old at the time.

Too Late to Cry, Krauss' debut album, appeared in 1987 to very positive reviews. The album was recorded with Krauss' backup band, the Union Station, which featured guitarist Jeff White, banjoist Alison Brown, and bassist Viktor Krauss; the following year, the group won the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass in America's National Band Championship contest. In 1989, Krauss and Union Station released Two Highways, which was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Recording. Although the album didn't win the award, her next album, 1990's I've Got That Old Feeling, did. The success of I've Got That Old Feeling was unprecedented for bluegrass acts in the '80s and it laid the groundwork for Krauss' breakthrough in the '90s. By this time, Union Station's lineup had more or less settled. It now featured mandolinist Adam Steffey, banjoist/guitarist Ron Block, bassist Barry Bales, and guitarist Tim Stafford; Stafford later left the group and was replaced by Dan Tyminski.

In 1992, Alison Krauss & Union Station released Every Time You Say Goodbye, which featured a typically eclectic array of material. The album appeared in the country charts and Krauss' videos were shown on Country Music Television. I Know Who Holds Tomorrow was released in 1994 and was even more successful. But it was the 1995 compilation Now That I've Found You: A Collection that made Krauss a star. The album reached number two on the country charts and -- even more remarkably -- went into the pop Top Ten and sold over a million copies. Its success confirmed her status as bluegrass' leading light in the '90s.

Krauss & Union Station followed the unexpected success of Now That I've Found You with So Long, So Wrong in spring 1997. Forget About It followed in mid-1999. A year later, Krauss & Union Station joined the likes of John Hartford, Ralph Stanley, and others for the multi-million-selling soundtrack O Brother, Where Art Thou? A North American tour showcasing some of the album's stellar musicians followed in summer 2002, allowing Krauss and her band's popularity to soar. New Favorite appeared in November and went gold within four months. A live album followed soon after, and in 2004 Krauss released Lonely Runs Both Ways. A Hundred Miles or More, a collection drawn from Krauss' Rounder albums, along with sides recorded for various soundtrack projects and five previously unreleased tracks, appeared in 2007. Also appearing in 2007 was Raising Sand, an acclaimed, multi-platinum collaboration with Robert Plant. She was back with Union Station for 2011’s Paper Airplane, which was self-produced by the band and engineered by Mike Shipley. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Love the Chemistry between them
Money N Honey an All The Way Round
THis was really a great album release... Seemed an unlikely collaboratio n at first. I've always been a fan of both Alison and Plant. The whole album really grew on me the more I listened. Some really incredible music
Trampled Rose is the most amazing hauntingly melancholy song that places you in a peaceful trance. It's more than a song to me. It's more of a mission to send a message. Xo
Poor Mr. Kinney, full of suds and toad sweat. As cute and uplifting as he may or may not be, this is not the venue for him. This is a music site not a match makers haven. And no its not scary, its simple mathematics.
And yes I know that he has his followers, but please comments on Leonard Cohen's music (who is awesome). This is not hate and I hope no haters respond. Thank you and blessings on all of you.
I don't think there will ever be follow up to Rising Sand. I read recently where Plant and Krause did in fact get back in the studio for a follow-up album but the magic just wasn't there so the project was shelved.
Sorry guys. I have to do this...Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works.
I wish they would do another album together... waiting for it. ...Please?
what a combo..Plant gets better with age and Alison Krauss has a beautiful voice...very easy to listen to!
That's a whole lotta love!!
like good great max
Why isn't this John Prine? I do not have Allison Krauss or Robert Plant in/on any of my playlists or likes. I do, however, have John Prine. VERY disappointin g .
symphonyoaks
Seems like an old friend coming home. Very welcome. Very peaceful.
well, i've slowly moved towards country, blue grass, mountain music, whatever... started i guess with Leon Russel's Hank Wilson's Back vol.2, i guess that Robert Plant joining just shows how broad the movement is.... if you go waaay back, country and blues seem to have a common core, and it's still some of my favorite music... full circle, it is unbroken indeed
Blows my mind everytime
Robert Plant has been releasing Folk/Bluegra s s records for awhile now. Only fitting he recorded this with the best Female in the genre.

This is not a duet I thought I would every see! But this is a beautiful album. Just love it. Their voices meld together so well.

I love them together!! I wish they would do another album.

Quite surprising.. . t h o u g h maybe it should not have been...an Allison Krausse and Robert Plant collaboratio n ? One of my
favorite bands as a teenager's lead singer and one of my favorite
bluegrass/fo l k / j a z z g r a s s artists Allison. What great fun listening to
some of their collaboratio n s together!
One of best cd's in last 40 years. I first remember stick with me baby by The Everly Brothers who would be a good replacement for Roy Orbinson of The Travelin' Willburys.
Today is Valentines Day and I'm dying to hear Muskrat Love by The Cap'n & Tennile.
<3 this album!

This has become one of my all time favorites. The more I hear it, the more I love it!
this cd helped me to (finally) like Allison Krauss...she and Plant are a DYNAMIC duo!
I couldn't believe that was Robert Plant. They sound great together!

I wish there was a double like button. :)
People commented on the absence of a bio for Krauss a few months ago, but now the bio for Plant is cut short. Can you fix this? Thanks!
cmyers3402
I would never have predicted that these 2 would sing together- terrific
I have loved Robert Plant since I was 15. I am now 49!
I love Robert Plant
Great music!!!t Nelson

Wow. Really like this one. Nice to hear this pairing. Really nice.
nancy buy this cd it's different and cool
Alison's bio seems to be missing from this page.
It looks like the biography is only for Robert Plant, not Alison Krauss. Pandora does have a biography for her as well, so this page should include both. Though I mostly like Pandora's new interface, it seems this is an issue which has suffered. I'm also disappointed that the album reviews seem to have disappeared.
what a great combo of voices ! love this pandora !
Why a huge biography on Plant and NOTHING on Krauss
love it
saragarza
ok , i just discovered this song and it is beautiful!!!
I think I need to get me a copy of this CD!
Why can't we have more meaningful collaboratio n s like these two?
Ditto, ditto, ditto!! LOVE this one!!
THis is goose bump music. So damn smooth

Beck is a loser!

A couple of years ago, at ACL Fest, I had a chance to see these two. All my friends went to see Beck b/c they wanted a more upbeat act. These two blew me away. I was stunned. First, you never decline a chance to see Robert Plant while he still has a strong voice. Second, consider the music and who he's paired with. This show had more energy than most and the quality of the musicians was beyond compare. I hope I get another chance to relive it. BTW, I heard Beck was a snoozer that night.
LOVE IT!

I first heard this on the J.C. Penny commercial and new immediately this cd would be a huge success. What a great duo.
