Danny Schmidt and Carrie Elkin - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

It was love pretty much at first sight when Carrie Elkin and Danny Schmidt met at Folk Alliance in Memphis. It took these busy musicians about 7 years to record an album together, but it's a beauty, with a fitting title - "For Keeps." The soon-to-be newlyweds, one of Austin's favorite couples, visited me in Studio A to share a little of their love story and a few songs from the album.

Robert Plant keeps moving forward with his musical choices, without abandoning or ignoring his glorious past. Since Led Zeppelin ended in December 1980 (following the death of their drummer John Bonham) Plant has recorded numerous solo albums, reunited with Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page for several projects, and ventured into Americana and world music. He successfully and surprisingly teamed up with bluegrass star Alison Krauss in 2007 and then joined Patty Griffin and Buddy Miller for Band of Joy in 2010.
