And then, the quality of “Raising Sand” – all covers, not a single original, but all given a heartfelt treatment – was fantastic, and the Grammys the record won were very much deserved. Since then, both Krauss and Plant had moved on, yet this year Robert made a short stop in Nashville and rekindled the old creative flame, so he and Alison ended up recording a new piece which will land on an OST for the upcoming “Love The Coopers” movie, starring John Goodman and Diane Keaton.
