RosanneCash01Rosanne Cash recently discussed her new album The List with The Wall Street Journal’s Christopher Farley. She spoke about her famous father, and admitted when asked that she doesn’t listen to country radio (sounds like my kind of gal).

    she may not listen to country radio but in another interview she has more to say about Carrie and Taylor (well, about Taylor anyway) In the Billboard interview she expands her comments after saying she doesnt listen to country radio.

    billboard:
    Do you feel any connection with today’s country music?

    Rosanne:
    “I don’t listen to country radio but I often hear things that I think are fun and exciting and good. I don’t know who a lot of the young people are or what they sound like, but the other day I was flipping through the channels and I saw Taylor Swift. I’d heard so much about her, she’s sold millions and millions of records, but I’d never heard her sing. I saw her on a George Strait tribute and I thought, “Wow, this little girl is really good, she’s really got something.” That’s always exciting, when you see somebody who is so young and you can see that spark in them.”

    I’ve always loved Rosanne’s voice and her music before I even knew she was Johnny’s daughter. Its great to see she is also able to appreciate the good in other areas of music that aren’t to her specific taste.

    Cash’s quote on the subject was actually very innocuous in that article:

    “Ms. Cash says she doesn’t listen to mainstream country radio. Asked about her thoughts on the young country-pop stars Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood, Ms. Cash replies: “I don’t know any of their songs, I’m sorry to say.'”

    As I read that portion, I was thinking of Matthew’s elaboration that I had read earlier, which was also on her blog in another variation.
