I've said before how much I love the Classic Country Artist's putting out new music.

Ronnie Milsap with his 'Summer Number Seventeen'.  Don Williams with his beautiful 'I'll Be Here In The Morning'.  And now Rosanne Cash has a hauntingly beautiful new single 'Etta's Tune'.

Rosanne Cash should at least be considered for the Country Music Hall of Fame in her own right.  Yes, she's the daughter of the biggest Country Star ever, but with 10 #1 hit single's of her own and some incredible albums...well, that's for another day.

First, listen to this beautiful new single.

The website 'CMT Edge' explains the backstory of this great song:

The first line of Rosanne Cash’s “Etta’s Tune” is an unusual one: “What’s the temperature, darling?” Following this exquisite performance in the CMT studio with trusty sidekick John Leventhal — her husband, co-writer and producer — she graciously explained the story behind the song.

Etta Grant is the widow of Marshall Grant, Johnny Cash‘s bass player. Still a close family friend, Etta mentioned that she and her husband of 65 years started each morning with that same memorable greeting. Thus, the first line of the song was born. Vividly describing the life of an ever-traveling musician, the lyrics beautifully capture the journey of a lifelong romance.
