A Feather's Not A Bird

Come along with me on an experimental Pinterest voyage! We are dedicating separate boards for select songs from my new record "The River & The Thread". "A Feather's Not A Bird" lays out the landscape of the album: A travelogue of the South, the Soul, the crazy and wonderful Characters, the Past and the Future. The thread connects me to all the places I mention, and all the Southern people I love. I want to hear from you! Feel free to share. xxxxoooo

A feather's not a bird, the rain is not the sea, a stone is not a mountain, but....

  • Charlie Brown

    This song stays with you long after the last note has faded like an evening with an old friend that you don't want to end

  • Bill Frater

    Love the song... can't get it out of my head! Great guitar riff form John and there's something haunting in the vocals...


  • Charlie Brown

    This is what a young JR Cash saw each morning as he walked into the field to start a long days work. I've love him and his music as long as I can remember, I wonder if he ever knew while picking cotton fields like this that one day he and his work would be loved by so many.

'Im going down to Florence/gonna wear a pretty dress/Sit atop the magic wall with the voices in my head.' Quilt created by Alabama Chanin for my friend Lisa Fox, with a line from my new song 'A Feather's Not A Bird'.

John and I went down to Memphis and drove through Mississippi to Florence, Alabama to visit our friend Natalie Chanin, and I did some sewing in her workshop.

    Love seeing this video! I ordered one of her books, fabric, etc, after seeing your posts on FB. Now I understand even more about the beautiful products. Thank you for sharing!!

    I love all the pictures Rosanne.I know this album is going to be a record setting hit for you. After following you so long I also know you and John pour yourselves totally into your work and it shows. I am terrible at Pinterest so I will shut up now and let someone else talk for a while but before I do thank you for sharing so much with us.

A brief stop in Arkansas.

    I could almost paint your grandmother standing behind you... telling you how may hours she stood here too.
