Rosanne Cash – The Real Me

(click song title above to listen)

This is the real me, breakin’ down at last,
Hey, it’s the real me, crawlin’ out of my past,
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad

Rosanne Cash‘s pioneering King’s Record Shop was released on June 26, 1987 and it would prove a pivotal album not only in the career of Cash, but in the emergence of Americana as an heir to traditional country music. The album would also have the distinction of marking the first time a female artist had ever had four #1 singles on the Billboard Country charts from a single album. Cash’s covers of her father’s “Tennessee Flat Top Box”, John Hiatt’s “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”, John Stewart’s “Runaway Train” as well as “If You Change Your Mind,” a song she’d written with steel guitar player Hank DeVito, all climbed to the top of the chart.

King’s Record Shop is named after a store in Louisville, Kentucky which was owned by Gene King, younger brother of Country Music Hall of Fame songwriter Pee Wee King (“Tennessee Waltz”). Produced by Rodney Crowell (Rosanne’s then-husband), the set features a stellar band of players including Crowell, Vince Gill, Patty Smyth, Benmont Tench, Steve Winwood, and Randy Scruggs.

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of this classic with a special 180-gram vinyl edition including bonus tracks available via digital download coming Friday July 7th!

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.
