iTunes Review

Although Rosanne Cash is the daughter of country music legend Johnny Cash—which her two album before The River had dealt with in various ways—she's been cultivating her own roots-informed adult-contemporary sound with her husband/collaborator John Leventhal ever since 1990’s excellent Interiors. 2006’s Black Cadillac meditated on the passings of her dad, her mother (Vivian Liberto), and her stepmother (June Carter Cash); 2009’s The List interpreted the country songs her father considered essential. She doesn’t take her lineage lightly. Here, “Etta’s Tune” is written in memory of family friend Marshall Grant, who’d also been a member of her dad’s band. Elsewhere, she sings of Jesus coming from Mississippi, the Tallahatchie Bridge from Bobbie Gentry’s “Ode to Billie Joe,” and “Money Road,” where in 1955 a black teenager named Emmett Till spoke to a white woman in a move that cost him his life. A New Yorker with deep Southern roots, Cash understands—and has lived through—the complexities of culture. The deluxe edition includes three bonus songs, including covers of Townes Van Zandt’s “Two Girls” and Jesse Winchester’s “Biloxi.”

Customer Reviews

Truly one of the world’s great singer/songwriter/artists

At last we have some new Rosanne to listen to, and it’s really, really great stuff. This is my go-to artist for feeling like a real person (I’m a man, or else I would have said “real woman”). Simply loves me some Rosanne Cash. Rosanne, you rock!

Full album is just more joy. Don’t hesitate in buying this.

The Real Deal

Rosanne Cash has always impressed me as not just a great singer but as a great singer-songwriter. She does not dissapoint on this album. Heartfelt and truly magical.

The history of popular music is littered with the careers of the children of famous artists, performers who manage to carve out some small measure of success based far less on talent than on the recognition that their famous names afford them. Perhaps no greater exception to this trend was Rosanne Cash, the daughter of Johnny Cash, whose idiosyncratic and innovative music made her one of the preeminent singer/songwriters of her day. Born May 24, 1955, to her father and his first wife, Vivian Liberto,...
