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.”
