Rosanne Cash‘s beautiful new album, The River & the Thread, on Blue Note Records is available today! HERE.. This is her first album in more than four years and it richly evokes the Southern landscape – physical, musical, emotional – and examines the indelible impressioins it has made on our own collective culture. It’s sweeping in its breadth, capturing a unique, multi-generational cast of characters – from a Civil War soldier off to fight in Virginia to a New Deal-era farmer in Arkansas to a contemporary Mobile, AL couple. Cash wrote the album’s 11 original songs with her longtime collaborator and husband, John Leventhal who also served as producer, arranger, and guitarist. The album also includes the talents of Cory Chisel, John Paul White, Kris Kristofferson, John Prine, Derek Trucks, Rodney Crowell, and Amy Helm.
