From the very beginning of the musical collaboration between Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, many speculated that the chemistry between the two singers could be attributed to a love relationship. According to Country Thang Daily, however, Plant and Krauss were never a couple. Instead, as Plant and Krauss revealed recently to American Songwriter, the two musicians met at a tribute to the legendary blues musician Lead Belly.
Prior to that they were aware of one another, and fans of each other’s work; Krauss, because who doesn’t like Led Zeppelin, while Plant especially liked Krauss’ work with Union Station. The two became fast friends over a shared interest in classic bluegrass star Ralph Stanley, and the musical partnership only grew from there. As far as anything romantic between the couple, that was put to rest for good through a recent interview conducted by People. When it comes to the chemistry between Plant and Krauss, it’s a friendship that’s all about the music. Plant even joked that if the two had ever been an item, “We’d be in trouble now. Trouble, party of one,” he said.
