Rosanne Cash – The Good Intent

(click song title above to listen)

The name of the ship that carried the first Cash ancestor to the new world in the mid-1600s was named The Good Intent. It’s also the name of this week’s stunning Top Tune written by Rosanne Cash and her husband, John Leventhal from her 2006 album, Black Cadillac.

It’s incredible to think of the impact that journey would eventually have on American Roots Music. In honor of that journey and in celebration of the one we get to travel along with Rosanne on through her songs and artistry, we offer up a HUGE congratulations to her on her upcoming induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame on October 11th, 2015!

Induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame is one of the nation’s highest songwriting achievements. Since 1970, the hall has enshrined some of the greatest writers ever to put words to music including Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, Don & Phil Everly, and Roy Orbison just to name a few. This will only be the latest stop for Rosanne Cash in a stellar year that saw her sweep 3 Grammy wins this past February for her album, The River & the Thread and most recently, three sold-out performances as September’s Artist-In-Residence for the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum. Rosanne is an outspoken advocate for artists rights and has testified on behalf of songwriters and musicians before Congress and elsewhere for fair treatment in the digital age. She has had 11 #1 singles in her career, navigating her own path between country and rock, roots and pop. In 1996, she published a collection of short stories called Bodies of Water and in 2000 a children’s book: Penelope Jane: A Fairy’s Tale. Her essays and fiction have appeared in various collections and publications including the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Time Magazine, The Oxford American, and New York Magazine. In 2010, Viking released Rosanne’s much anticipated memoir, Composed, which made the NY Times Bestseller list the fist week of release.

Congratulations Rosanne on your well-deserved induction to the hall!

Rosanne Cash – Burn Down This Town

The clapboard jail and the co-op board
The garden club and the bedroom door
The sprinkled lawn and the mirrored hall
The Christmas tree
Just burn it all

“Burn Down This Town” – from Rosanne Cash’s Grammy nominated, critically acclaimed Black Cadillac – is a track filled with a perfect mix of attitude and grace. The sentimental urgency of the song, co-written by Rosanne and her producer/guitarist/husband John Leventhal, captivates from the first listen. Black Cadillac – billed by her label as a “12 song musical memoir” – was a fitting tribute to her mother, father and stepmother, all who passed within a two-year span during the writing and recording of this album. Rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone and Newsweek – among so many others – hailed the album as being Rosanne’s greatest work to date.

In February of this year Rosanne was presented with the 2012 AFTRA Media and Entertainment Excellence Award, an annual gala taking place in New York where talent in television, film and broadcasting communities are honored. Rosanne also recently shared the stage at the Brady Theater in Tulsa, OK at the Woody Guthrie Centennial Tribute with the likes of the Flaming Lips, Arlo Guthrie, Jackson Browne, John Mellencamp, Taylor Hansen and more.

Last month, Rosanne held a one-week “digital residency” on AOL’s The Boot music site – each day premiering an exclusive video from fan requested set list, titled Live from Zone C. An intimate performance recorded entirely in the living room of her New York City home to celebrate the release of the 2-disc anthology, The Essential Rosanne Cash.

Oh, and if you don’t already follow Rosanne’s tweets, we strongly suggest you do. You won’t be sorry: @rosannecash

Check out this great performance of “Burn Down This Town” from the BBC’s Jools Holland Show.

Rosanne Cash – Black Cadillac

It was a black Cadillac drove you away
Everybody’s talkin’
But they don’t have much to say
It was a black sky of rain
None of it fell
One of us gets to go to heaven
One has to stay here in hell

The title track off of Rosanne’s eleventh studio effort, Black Cadillac – billed by her label as a “12 song musical memoir” – was a fitting tribute to her mother, father and stepmother, all who passed within a two-year span during the writing and recording of this album. Wrote Mojo Magazine: “This album is extraordinary. It is brave, difficult, and honest. It is utterly moving and beautiful. Because it so successfully marries all of her strengths as a songwriter, singer, and musician, Black Cadillac may be the crowning achievement of her career thus far.”

Nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Album in 2007, Cash received much praise for the project: “Rosanne Cash’s best” hailed Rolling Stone; Newsweek echoed, calling it “Stunning. This is not just the best album she’s made in a long time, this is the best album she’s ever made.”

Watch a great live performance of “Black Cadillac” from a UK/BBC television performance HERE.

You can find the brand new “The Best of Rosanne Cash” songbook (from Hal Leonard), containing 17 songs spanning her career thus far, on sale for a lim!ited time at Amazon!
