in Cash honey, y'all

If you've ever dismissed Rosanne Cash as the daughter of her more famous father, as a mainstream country relic from the '80s or as the former wife of her producer-turned-lover Rodney Crowell, you haven't heard "I'll Change for You." A brilliant 2003 duet with Steve Earle written entirely by Cash, the instantly addictive number is one of the freshest turns on the "Love is all you need" axiom in years, pitting Cash's long, plaintive pleas that she can and will change anything if the husky Earle--who needs reassurance at every turn--will only love her. In a little under four minutes, they settle it, sharing the sentiment of the final verse and singing, "I'll travel through time to love you again/And I'll change for you." But if the 49-year-old Cash can continue making country music as generous and progressive as this, she shouldn't change a thing. See a legend in her own right. Show starts at 8 p.m., tickets are $18-$26. --Grayson Currin
