When Bobby met Ally

What happened when hirsute Rock God Robert Plant met bluegrass chanteuse and fiddler Alison Krauss?
2007's Rising Sand on Rounder Records produced by go to Americana producer T-Bone Burnett - that's what
Winner of the Album of the Year in the 2009 Grammy Awards
The first song featured is an Everly Brother's cover - wonder who's playing Don and who's playing Phil.
This is the second time that  a  cover of Fortune Teller has featured on CCM the first being from Ash back in March 2013.
Given the success of this album you would have thought that a sequel may have been on the cards.
But let's face it it is not as if either of them (especially Bob) needs the money.
I heard a radio interview with Alison Krauss when she was asked the question.
She made all the right noises re busy schedules and competing priorities but between the lines I got the distinct impression that she wasn't keen to repeat the experience anytime soon.
