It also includes guest performances by [4 ] Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Jeff Tweedy and Rufus Wainwright.
The album contains country songs made famous by
Jimmie Rodgers, The Carter Family, Don Gibson, Ray Price, Lefty Frizzell, Patsy Cline, and other country stars, as well the traditional folk song "Motherless Children" and 1960s folk numbers by Bob Dylan and Peter, Paul, and Mary. The List peaked at #5 on s country album chart — Cash's first top ten album on the chart in 22 years — and hit #22 on the general Billboard' Billboard Hot 200, topping her previously most successful album on that chart, 1981's Seven Year Ache which peaked at #26. It was also her first entry on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart, where it debuted and peaked at #8. The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Americana Album.
