"There's a line in 'World of Strange Design' that I lifted from a Scottish proverb. Something like 'You ask me about my drinkin' but you don't ask about my thirst.' Those lines... they stay with me. And they inspire me. They can open up the landscape.”
On Art of the Song we visited with Rosanne Cash, and her husband/collaborator John Leventhal. The eldest daughter of country music icon, Johnny Cash, Rosanne has had an illustrious career of her own, with 21 top 40 country hits including 11 number ones.
We spoke with Rosanne and John about the current album, The River and the Thread, a historic landscape of the American South. The album’s unique sound, which draws from country, blues, gospel, and rock, reflects the soulful mix of music that traces its history to the region.
