Set List

Songs played by Ryan Adams and the Cardinals:

  • "Beautiful Sorta"
  • "Easy Plateau", Cold Roses
  • "Cold Roses"
  • "A Kiss Before I Go"
  • "Magnolia Mountain"

Cold Roses is the new CD just released by Ryan Adams & the Cardinals. It is also the first of three albums Ryan plans to release this year. The stunningly prolific singer/songwriter brings his band the Cardinals into our studios to play some of his new music.

The double album is the result of sharing songwriting duties among 30-year-old Adams and the group. But that's not all their fans will hear from Adams and the Cardinals this year. On Sept. 12, Jacksonville City Nights is scheduled to be released.
