Robert Plant and Alison Krauss were the big winners at the 51st annual Grammy Awards at Los Angeles' Staples Center, tallying five trophies, including album of the year for the Rounder project "Raising Sand" and record of the year for "Please Read The Letter."
"We are thrilled and very grateful to everybody who is excited for us," Krauss said. "I'm bewildered," Plant said. "In the old days we would have called this selling out - but it's a good way to spend a Sunday."
The wins came on top of their victories for pop collaboration with vocals for "Rich Woman," as well as best country collaboration with vocals for "Killing The Blues" and best contemporary folk/Americana album. Krauss and Plant performed both "Rich Woman" and "Gone Gone Gone (Done Moved On)" during the show.
"This project has been spectacular from the beginning," Plant said. "We're very proud of the job T-Bone Burnett did for us to make it so good."
