Raising Sand is the name of their duet album. Some very interesting tunes ranging from odd to hmmm to nice to great.
Produced by T Bone Burnett
I especially like "Your Long Jouney" and "Polly Come Home."

Listen to the album here.

My current favs are "Killing The Blues" which I've loved since I first heard it on John Prines Pink Cadillac cd in the late 70's and "Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us" by Sam Phillips another great artist.

I've been loving this record ever since they put it on the Starbucks playlist. It's amazing.

I've not heard Prine's version but my absolute favorite version of Killing the Blues is by Shawn Colvin from Cover Girl.

My favorites are: "Please Read the Letter", "Let Your Loss Be Your Lesson", "Your Long Journey" and "Rich Woman." I love this CD! Isn't the production by T-Bone Burnett kick-ass?
