The River & The Thread  (Blue Note Records)
by Rosanne Cash

FOR FANS OF: Sam Phillips, Nickel Creek, Natalie Merchant
Rating: 4 Stars

As the daughter of Johnny Cash, expectations are always high whenever Rosanne Cash releases a record; but on her first project in more than four years, she continues establishing herself as a gifted singer/songwriter of her own accord. The River & The Thread is hinged on observations about southern culture, including a multitude of characters and locations, resulting in a series of enthralling narratives over a bed of blues, gospel, folk, rock and, of course, country.
