At 55, Rosanne Cash hasn’t lived a minute out of the spotlight. But given her parentage (father Johnny and stepmother June Carter), a quiet life was never really an option. In her new memoir Composed, Cash unloads on her early life as a member of her father’s road show and as witness to his many struggles with addiction while finding her own musical and literary voice. Cash covers the recording of her 1990 album Interiors, her first marriage to and divorce from Rodney Crowell, and the deaths of her father, mother, and stepmother. Anyone expecting commentary on the 2005 biopic Walk the Line should prepare to be disappointed. Cash was not a fan.
