Rosanne Cash returns with her first album of original material since the wonderful 2006 release Black Cadillac, as you’d expect there’s a host of guest appearances from the country and Americana scene, including Rodney Crowell, Cory Chisel, Kris Kristofferson, Allison Moorer, Amy Helm, John Prine, John Paul White, the album is a literate collection of originals with Cash taking co-write credits on all of the tracks with current husband John Leventhal and one track with ex Rodney Crowell, the resulting album is a literate collection of reflective tunes with Cash’s emotive vocal in fine form.
