In this remarkable album's opening track, "A Feather's Not a Bird," Rosanne Cash details a road trip that takes her through her Memphis birthplace to Arkansas, the state that gave birth to her father, Johnny. Influenced as she was by her dad's spectacular career and even more titanic personality, Cash grew up mainly in California and currently makes her home in New York City. Still, there's no mistaking the imprint of her southern roots, even if her economical lyrics share more in common with, say, Eudora Welty than they do the Man in Black.
