Reviews:

''The List'' is an album by Rosanne Cash, released in 2009. When she was 18, Johnny Cash gave his daughter Rosanne a list of 100 essential country songs in an effort to expand her knowledge of country music. On the album, Rosanne re-interprets 12 of the songs from the list through her own perspective on country music, her father, and her life in New York instead of Nashville. It also includes guest performances by Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Jeff Tweedy and Rufus Wainwright.

The album contains country songs made famous by Jimmie Rodgers, The Carter Family, Don Gibson, Ray Price, Lefty Frizzell, Patsy Cline, and other country stars, as well the traditional folk song "Motherless Children" and 1960's folk numbers by Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul, and Mary.

''The List'' peaked at #5 on ''Billboards country album chart, Cash's first top ten album on the chart in 22 years and hit #22 on the general Billboard Hot 200, topping her previously most successful album on that chart, 1981's ''Seven Year Ache'' which peaked at #26. It is also her first entry on the ''Billboard'' Top Rock Albums chart, where it debuted and peaked at #8. - Wikipedia
