Robert Plant Puts On Surprise Show

You might remember that ex-Led Zeppelin star Robert Plant took a turn toward alt-country with Alison Krauss, an effort that netted the duo five Grammys last year.

So it was no surprise to see Robert at the Americana Music Association Honors & Awards Show last night (Sept. 9) at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, hanging out with folks such as Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash and Rodney Crowell.

What was surprising: After the Artist of the Year award was presented, Plant took over the stage and played an approximately 30-minute unannounced set, according to The Tennessean.

He played with an Americana all-star band of sorts, which included Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Darrell Scott, Byron House and Marco Giovino.

Plant wasn’t the only rocker there: John Mellencamp received the Americana Lifetime Achievement Award for songwriting.
