9/13/17: Robert Plant & Alison Kraus “Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)”
Talk about getting out of your comfort zone! Robert Plant and Alison Kraus both decided to do a little something different back in 2007 when they released “Raising Sand” together. Obviously, they’re both extraordinary musicians in their own right, with Plant being frontman of the legendary Led Zeppelin and pursuing a number of musical projects after Zeppelin ended and Kraus is an amazing and respected bluegrass and country artist with 26 Grammys to her credit.
Robert Plant’s is known for his vocal range, specifically moving into the higher pitches. He communicated such power with his voice during his Led Zeppelin days that it was a little tough to imagine him in a more mellow setting, but the partnership between him and Alison Kraus ended up being spectacular. “Raising Sand” won five Grammy awards in 2009, and sold well over 100,000 copies in its first week. The songs were good, the harmonies were closer to perfect, and the album came together like a dream for fans of both Plant and Kraus.
There was one song in particular that got plenty of attention, and it’s the one I can’t get out of my head today. It was called “Gone, Gone Gone (Done Moved On)” and it was originally written by the Everly Brothers, who you may know as influences on The Beatles and one of the first 10 artists inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame! Enjoy listening to two of the all-time greats make wonderful music together!
