Listening To Now

Rosanne Cash at the South by Southwest Festiva...Image via WikipediaI've made a list of what songs I was listening to on my Ipod before but this time I thought I'd just take a moment now and than during the day to give a snapshot of what's on the Ipod at the moment.

Right now I'm listening to Rosanne Cash singing "Price of Temptation" from her album 10 Song Demo. Cash is of course the daughter of Johnny Cash and his first wife. She was born in Memphis Tennessee around the time Johnny was starting to make a name for himself. After the divorce of her parents Rosanne lived with her mother.

After graduating high school she joined her Father's band and sang back up on his tour for the next three years. In 1978 she went to Germany to record her first album. During this time she met and married Rodney Crowell, another up and coming singer. Her first album was never released in the USA.

In the early eighties Crowell and Cash worked on her breakthrough album Seven Years Ache. The album was a hit, both with the public and the critics. Through the 80s Cash recorded more music that would go on to be hits, having 11 number ones hits.

In the 90s her public appeal seemed to fade and her records did not do as well. Her first album for that decade was Interiors and won her a Grammy. She still records today, her last album was Black Cadillac which was done as a memorial to her recently departed parents and her step mom June Carter Cash, who all died within months of each other.
