Rosanne Cash: The List

Airs Friday, January 28 at 11 p.m. When she was 18 years old, Rosanne Cash was given a list of "100 Essential Country Songs" by her father Johnny. For her latest album she picked a baker's dozen of them and recorded "The List," re-interpreting these classics in her own inimitable way.

Recent awards for The List include Album of me Year from the 2010 Americana Music Awards and a 2011 Grammy Nomination for Best Americana Album.
