Johnny was vacationing in Nashville in the fall of 2006 when Robert Plant was cutting that magnificent album with Alison Krauss called Raising Sand also in Nashville. One morning Johnny and his bride were enjoying the cuisine at the famous Loveless Cafe. Breakfasts so good they make you cry knowing you're going to have to eat a common breakfast at some point. Well there is a gift shop out behind the restaurant where you can get some incredible bone sucking BBQ sauce they smoke on site. Johnny walked into the gift store to grab some sauce and heard the sales clerk calling her friend in a very excited tone. She hung up to wait on Johnny and Mrs. Johnny and leaned forward and said Robert Plant had JUST left the store. By just left she meant a minute. Johnny looked about for Mr. Plant (but like a dog who chases cars wouldn't know what to do with him if he'd caught up with him) but didn't find hide nor big hair. Now you know Johnny's Robert Plant story.

Well not all of it. Johnny had the country ham with red-eye gravy and of course grits. The biscuits at the Loveless Cafe will make you want to feed the Pillsbury Dough Boy to your dog. Johnny got two of those. NOW you know his Robert Plant story.

'Heaven Knows'
