I keep a Project Playlist on a test blog and listen to it while I’m working. Recently I was adding Alison Krauss songs and found a series of duets by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. Living in my own little bubble, I had managed to miss out on the fact that they’d recorded an album together, Raising Sand. I went straight to Amazon and placed my order and it’s been in heavy rotation in my home and van ever since. My kids could listen to Fortune Teller all day long. iTunes lists the CD as country, although I would call it some sort of country/blues/bluegrass/gypsy/oldies mix; it defies simplistic categorization attempts.

CMT is airing a live concert at 8 p.m. Eastern Time this Monday, the 11th; you can watch parts of it on their website, too. I found this cool widget that will let you preview the songs.
