Robert Plant and Alison Krauss made it a clean sweep on February 8, 2009. They took home 5 Grammys–one for every category they were nominated in:
Album of the Year for Raising Sand
Pop Collaboration with Vocals for Rich Woman
Record of the Year for Please Read the Letter
Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for Killing the Blues
Best Contemporary Folk/Americana Album for Raising Sand
Add that to the Grammy already won last year for Gone Gone Gone, that’s six for Raising Sand.
These honors are well deserved. Congratulations to Robert and Alison!

Monday Music offers a random Robert track for your listening fun.
Today’s track is a live track from the Raising Sand tour. The show was Columbia, MD (Washington DC), June 13, 2008. The song is “Nothin’” from the Raising Sand album. It’s interesting to follow specific songs through a tour because they take on subtle changes as time goes by. At this point in the tour, “Nothin’” is a bit faster tempo than say, the first night at the Palace in April. “Nothin’” is another of my favorite tracks from “Raising Sand”.
