Raising Sand On Track To Land At Billboard's No. 2

Raising Sand, the collaboration between Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, is on track to sell between 80,000 and 90,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart (behind "American Idol" and Grammy Best New Artist winner Carrie Underwood), according to Hits Daily Double.

According to Tennessean.com, Plant and Krauss taped an episode of CMT Crossroads last Thursday at The Mill at Lebanon in Tennessee that will air at a later date.

Produced by T-Bone Burnett, Raising Sand includes versions of the Everly Brothers' Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On), Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan's Trampled Rose and Please Read the Letter, first released on the 1998 Plant/Jimmy Page album Walking Into Clarksdale.

Listen to the first single, Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On), at this location (Real media). Additional samples are available at Amazon.com.

According to Billboard.com, Plant and Krauss first performed together on November 7, 2004 at a Leadbelly tribute at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, but it took several years before they found time to team up in the studio with Burnett in Nashville and Los Angeles.
