Rosanne Cash, The List 2009
Rosanne Cash is about release a new album in mid January 2014.The album is titled The River and the Thread.
This news sent me back to play some of her other work, including two favourites, Black Cadillac (2006) and the more recent The List (2009). (she has not released an album since then)
In Rosanne’s on words: “When I was 18, I was on the road with my dad (Johnny Cash). One day, we were sitting in the tour bus, talking about songs, and he mentioned a song, and I said, “I don’t know that one.” He mentioned another one, and I said, “I don’t know that one, either.” Then he started to get alarmed, so he spent the rest of the day making a list on a legal pad, and at the top he put “100 Essential Country Songs.”
Rosanne Cash kept that list and now she’s drawn on it for this wonder album.
I can assure you that it is really worth playing loud when you can sing along with it. So probably best to be alone.
here’s a couple from You Tube:
