The highly anticipated 13th album of Roseanne Cash has garnered a heap of excitement, especially from Cash herself. "If I never make another album, I will be content knowing I made this one."
“My heart got expanded to the South, to the people I had known, to the people I met…It started by going to Arkansas, to my dad’s boyhood home…All these things started happening to feel a deeper layer of the South than I had ever experienced and I went down to the Delta, to all of the places where the great Blues musicians are from. And we went to [author William] Faulkner’s house and Oxford, Miss., and just the richness of the Delta in particular started bringing songs to us. We started finding these stories, these great stories, and melodies, that went with these experiences," said the eldest daughter of Johnny Cash.
Other amazing country musicians took part in the recording of this record, including Cory Chisel, Rodney Crowell, Amy Helm, Kris Kristofferson, Allison Moorer, John Prine, Derek Trucks, John Paul White of The Civil Wars, Tony Joe White and Gabe Witcher of The Punch Brothers. If the sheer number of awesome musicians doesn't get your blood running, then we don't know what will.
Actually, we may actually know what'll get you moving. We have the song "A Feather's Not A Bird", and we're positive that you'll love it. Listen to the song below in all its glory. Pick up the new album The River and The Thread
