After the breakup of Led Zeppelin in 1980 (following the death of John Bonham), Robert Plant pursued a successful solo career consisting of ten studio albums, two compilation albums, two video albums, four collaborative albums and forty-two singles. He began his solo career with Pictures at Eleven in 1982, followed by 1983's The Principle of Moments. Popular tracks from this period include "Big Log" (a Top 20 hit in 1983), "In the Mood" (1984), "Little by Little" (from 1985's Shaken 'n' Stirred), "Tall Cool One" (a #25 hit off 1988's Now and Zen) (1990) Manic Nirvana featuring "Hurting Kind (I got my eyes on you)" and "I Believe" (from 1993's Fate of Nations), another song written for and dedicated to his late son, Karac. In 1984, Plant formed a short-lived all-star group with Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck called the Honeydrippers, who had a #3 hit with a remake of the Phil Phillips' tune, "Sea of Love" and a follow-up hit with a cover of Roy Brown's "Rockin' at Midnight." Although Plant avoided performing Led Zeppelin songs through much of this period, his tours in 1983 (with drummer Phil Collins) and 1985 were very successful, often performing to sold-out arena-sized venues.

In 2007, Plant collaborated with bluegrass and country music artist Alison Krauss. They released the critically accepted Raising Sand on 23 October 2007, via Krauss' record label, Rounder Records. The album proved to be a success, debuting at #2 on the all-genre Billboard 200 and #2 on the Top Country Albums chart. It was an international success as well, being certified Platinum in many countries. In 2008, the album's first single, "Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)", won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals at the 50th Grammy Awards. At the 51st Grammy Awards, the album won all five categories in which it was nominated – Album of the Year, Best Contemporary Folk Album, Record of the Year (for "Please Read the Letter"), Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals (for "Rich Woman") and the Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals (for "Killing the Blues").
