In 2007, they released their first collaboration album, Raising Sand. The album spawned the hits “Please Read the Letter” and “Rich Woman.” The album resonated well with listeners and received critical acclaim from critics.

Fifteen years later, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss released Raise the Roof. The album also received raving reviews and performed impressively on the charts.

The album spawned the singles “High and Lonesome,” “It Don’t Bother Me,” and “Somebody Was Watching Over Me.” In a statement, Plant described what it was like to create the music for Raise the Roof. “It’s such a far cry from everything I’ve done before. I love the whole kaleidoscope of music that I’ve explored, but this is a place where you can think within the song. You can decide how to bring home an emotion.”
