Linda Ronstadt & Emmylou Harris – Western Wall

(click song title above to listen)

In 1999, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and legendary producer Glyn Johns (The Who, The Beatles, The Clash) took over a house on the property of the historic Arizona Inn in Tucson and assembled a makeshift studio to record their genre-bending Western Wall: The Tucson Sessions. The trio assembled a studio band which included Neil Young, Andy Fairweather Low, Ethan Johns, Bernie Leadon, and Kate & Anna McGarrigle, among others – and the ladies chose material by such diverse songwriters as Sinead O’Connor, Patty Griffin, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Luscious Jackson’s Jill Cunniff, Andy Prieboy, and Jackson Browne. Amidst all these amazing songs, the musical centerpiece of this adventurous project proved to be Rosanne Cash‘s breathtaking “Western Wall.” Originally cut for Rosanne’s wonderfully sparse 1996 10 Song Demo album – and later re-recorded in fuller form on 2003′s Rules of Travel. Western Wall’s eerily hopeful lyrics proved a perfect vehicle for the duo’s angelic harmonies. A classic.

Lera Lynn – The Only Thing Worth Fighting For

(click song title above to listen)

It was one year ago this week when HBO released the first trailer to the highly anticipated season two of True Detective. This week’s tune (with lyrics by Rosanne Cash, music by T Bone Burnett and Lera Lynn) racked up millions of views as it gave fans the first glimpse of the second season’s characters and a plot that revolved around a murder, three Southern California-based law-enforcement officers, and a career criminal (played by Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn).

From the series’ inception, music director T Bone Burnett helped elevate the show’s intense drama with an incredible mix of haunting, original roots music and powerful voices. Three gorgeous originals in all (The Only Thing Worth Fighting For, My Least Favorite Life, and It Only Takes One Shot) were written by the trio of Cash, Burnett, and Lynn and all can be heard throughout season two as well as on the official soundtrack album. The stirring set stretches over both seasons, including cuts by Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, John Paul White, The Handsome Family, and Bob Dylan. Get yours HERE.

Rosanne Cash – Seven Year Ache

(click song title above to listen)

Vince Gill, a long time member of Rosanne Cash‘s band and a backing vocalist on her revolutionary 1981 smash album Seven Year Ache, brought the house down at the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony this past October when he performed this week’s top tune in honor of Rosanne’s induction to the Hall.
It was a fittingly poignant moment in an evening that celebrated Rosanne’s long and successful career as a songwriter and artist and one where she joins the Hall as the only father/daughter pairing in this company of illustrious songwriters.

Seven Year Ache is the masterpiece album that has been said to have paved the way for Garth Brooks, Shania Train, Shawn Colvin and then some. In Rolling Stone‘s 50 Country Albums Every Rock Fan Should Own, Cash “conceived her niche as post-pub-rock and borderline New Wave, at least in the sense of Tom Petty and Steve Forbert, whose material she interprets”. The album was produced by then-husband Rodney Crowell and the title track was Rosanne’s first #1 Country single, crossing over to a Top 25 Pop tune. The album spawned two more #1 Country singles including another self-penned stunner, “Blue Moon With Heartache” and Leroy Preston’s “My Baby Thinks He’s a Train”. This week’s tune earned Cash an ACM Awards nomination for Single Record of the Year, and helped earn her a nod for Album of the Year. Seven Year Ache is both a true classic and a trail blazer all wrapped in one.
