Music: Raising Sand

Robert Plant, who our father and others like him will recall from Led Zeppelin; and Alison Krauss, who our mother and others like her will recall from the soundtrack,O' Brother Where Art Thou?, join together to create a masterpiece of an album; Raising Sand.

Several of the songs on the album have the ethereal, fantastic aura of the Azure Ray genre, (e.g. Trampled Rose) and others feel almost Beetle-esque (e.g. Gone, gone, gone). Their duets (e.g. Killing the Blues) see their voices blending like Johnny and June Carter Cash and in a similar genre.

Quick vote: A bizarre combination of artists come together to create Raising Sand, and the result is incredibly memorable and an album for any occasion. We loved it!!!
