Plant/Krauss video debuts on CMT

Robert Plant, Alison Krauss - Raising SandThe first single from the new Robert Plant and Alison Krauss CD, Raising Sand, is for the song, Gone, Gone, Gone. The world premier of the music video for the single will be on November 29 on CMT’s Top 20 Countdown.

The show’s format is the familiar countdown to number one, with choices for favorite videos each week being partly determined by online voting. The Gone, Gone, Gone video is set to enter CMT in a medium-heavy rotation, with better than 20 airings weekly.

We have received a number of press releases suggesting that the video will air at 4:00 p.m. on 12/29, but the CMT site indicates that Top 20 Countdown is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. that day.

The video should be available for online viewing after the TV debut.

In addition to producing the album, Jones played an assortment of instruments — mandola, bass, piano, Papoose and wobbleboard — on four of the album tracks. The one with him on piano now has a video — speaking of videos — and it can be seen at
