Rosanne Cash Earns Career Milestone With ‘The River & The Thread’
Rosanne Cash has achieved another career milestone. The singer’s latest album, ‘The River & The Thread,’ debuted at No. 11, becoming her highest-charting career album on the Billboard 200.
The album also came in at No. 1 on the Folk Albums chart, No. 2 on the Top Country Albums chart, and at No. 5 on the Top Internet Albums chart. ‘The River & The Thread’ also soared to No. 1 on Amazon’s Best Sellers in Music, as well as No. 3 in the iTunes store, thanks in part to Cash’s recent appearance on ‘CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood.’
The songstress will continue her run of TV appearances over the next few weeks. She will appear on ‘Katie’ on Friday (Jan. 24), and perform on ‘CBS Saturday’ on Feb. 8. In addition, her ‘Yahoo Ram Country’ session premiered Wednesday (Jan. 22), and she will appear on the public radio show, ‘Q With Jian Ghomeshi,’ which will air next week on 160 stations.
Cash, who says her latest album is the most personal one she has recorded in her illustrious career, chronicles the journey of making ‘The River & The Thread’ in a revealing video.
“The veils were taken off some things that I thought I knew,” Cash explains in the making of the new album. “It was powerfully inspiring.”
The 58-year-old, who co-wrote every song on the album, says the album fulfills both a personal and professional dream she has carried with her.
“If I never make another album I will be content, because I made this one,” she maintains.
