W. o’ W.: Rosanne Cash

The College Board has no criteria for elements that are anything but effable. Ms. Cash’s father (Johnny Cash) told her “that your style is a function of your limitations more so than a function of your skills. Some things you can break down, and some things are ineffable. Some things are just part of that mystery where all creative energy comes from. It’s part of the soul. Music is an ever-moving blob of mercury.”
