About this title


This work presents the candid story behind the making of Rosanne Cash's next album, "The List", which is based on a list of 100 essential country songs compiled by her father, Johnny Cash. In 1973, Johnny Cash scribbled down a list of 100 essential country songs for his daughter Rosanne Cash to learn. Her next album, "The List", will be inspired by those 100 songs, essential, timeless tunes like "Willow Weep for Me", "Miss the Mississippi", "She's Got You", "Silver Wings", "Sweet Memories", "Motherless Children", "The Long Black Veil", and "Big River". Michael Streissguth, author of the acclaimed "Johnny Cash: The Biography" will, in "The List", offer the candid, behind-the-scenes story of the making of the album (also called "The List"), following Rosanne Cash to the studio and on tour, conveying generous portions of her characteristically pithy and articulate thoughts on her oft-troubled yet loving relationship with her famous father, the origins of these extraordinary songs and how they relate to her family as well as the genre of country music, her recovery from recent brain surgery, and reflections on her life and music.
