ROBERT PLANT & ALISON KRAUSS were honored in no less than five categories at the 51st annual Grammy Awards which were held earlier tonight (Sunday, February 8) in Los Angeles, California:* "Album Of The Year" for "Raising Sand"
* "Record Of The Year" for the song "Please Read The Letter"
* "Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals for the song "Rich Woman"
* "Best Country Collaboration With Vocals for the song "Killing The Blues"
* "Contemporary Folk/Americana Album" for "Raising Sand" Plant and Krauss also performed at the ceremony, which was held at Staples Center. Plant and Krauss told Billboard.com in June 2008 that they are hoping to turn their platinum-certified, Grammy Award-winning "Raising Sand" album into a going concern. "I'm in no hurry to go anywhere," Plant told Billboard.com. "I want to stay very close. This is a font of knowledge, and I'm sticking as close to it as I can." Krauss concurred: "We're all having a wonderful time, and I hope and I think all three of us are hoping to continue this and that it go on and on." But she added that the duo's association shouldn't bring the curtain down on any of their other projects.
