"At the heart of all real country music lies family, lies a devotion to exploring the bonds of blood ties, both in performance and in songwriting," Rosanne Cash writes in her new memoir, "Composed." Those themes of bonds of family and blood ties run deep in the book, just as they do in her music.
She writes of her mother's depression before her divorce from her father, Johnny Cash. She also describes having a unique perspective, growing up as the daughter of one of American's most cherished music legends. She says all of these experiences informed her own creative depths as she grew into her own musical life.
