The album is her musical reaction to the deaths of her father Johnny Cash, mother Vivian Liberto and stepmother June Carter Cash. Roseanne confesses she couldnt avoid the songs. Some of them wouldnt let her sleep until they were written.
Cash says the title track was written six weeks before Carters death and considers the tunes dark tone as a postcard from the future.
Still, it wasnt until she finished five of the songs that she realized she was working on a concept album.
Cash admits the record is very personal and contains all sorts of archival detail, both personal and musical.
Still, she thinks the average person will still be able to relate because the personal bits dont obliterate the universal.
Cash says songs from the Black Cadillac sessions will figure prominently in live sets on her upcoming tour, which kicks off July 7 in Westhampton Beach, New York.
