  • Can we get the secret service to follow this group, this has more sincere great musicians in one place than should be legal, I’m sorry, I could not help but love that, she did that on Leno recently. I guess the remarkable thing is that Alison is still singing traditional country, the incredible thing is that Robert Plant sounds good at it.It is different, seeing there are tons of Bluegrass bands around, let her do this if she wants.
