(AP) Rosanne Cash has been a New Yorker for two decades, but her latest project is taking her out of the city.


The 57-year-old singer is preparing a new album of songs about the American South, and did a lot of traveling with husband John Leventhal to get ideas.


Cash performed a smoldering version of Bobbie Gentry's 1967 hit, "Ode to Billie Joe," at a gala Thursday night benefiting New York radio station WFUV.


One of her travel stops in Mississippi was the Tallahatchie Bridge, where, in the song's lyrics, a young man jumped to his death. No, Cash said, she threw nothing from the bridge into the muddy waters below.


Her new disc is due in January.
