I have always had a fondness for the best of country music and have always enjoyed making fun of the worst. One thing is true about country music: you get a lot of memoir packed into most of those three-minute songs.
Johnny Cash and Ruth Carter Cash were some of the best. When I heard about Johnny Cash’s daughter Rosanne Cash’s album The List, I blogged about it here. Last night I heard Diane Rehm interview Rosanne, and the broadcast brought tears to my eyes. If you can watch theYouTube below of father and daughter without having your vision fog up a little, you are made of sterner stuff than I am.
I now have to read Rosanne Cash’s new memoir with the perfect name for her life: Composed.
