Alison Krauss, Robert Plant on CMT Crossroads

Robert Plant and Alison KraussTonight (2/11) is the first airing of the episode of CMT Crossroads featuring Robert Plant and Alison Krauss performing the music from their duo release, Raising Sand.

Crossroads has long had as its theme combining artists from different backgrounds to perform each other’s material live on stage, and the Plant/Krauss collaboration will be no exception. In addition to several songs from Raising Sand, the show will feature revised arrangements of Led Zeppelin classics and popular songs from recent AKUS projects.

Tonight’s broadcast is scheduled for both 1:00 and 8:00 p.m., with encore presentations on 2/15 at 3:00 p.m., 2/17 at 10:00 a.m. and 2/19 at 1:00 p.m. All times ET/PT.

CMT has a video preview available on their site, featuring the pair on the Everly Brothers’ Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On), the first single from the new CD, which was awarded the Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals trophy at last night’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
