Although it was not
Rosanne Cash's highest charting album at #6, (her sixth release) had the most singles topping the country charts. No fewer than four of its tracks placed #1 on the King's Record Shop Billboard country singles chart. They were " The Way We Make a Broken Heart", " If You Change Your Mind", " Tennessee Flat Top Box" (which was written and originally sung by father Johnny Cash), and " Runaway Train".
The album is named after King's Record Shop in
Louisville, Kentucky, which was owned by Pee Wee King's younger brother, Gene. A photograph of Rosanne Cash standing in the shop's doorway is featured on the cover, though she was never actually at the shop for the photo. Veteran steel guitarist Hank DeVito took the photo of the record shop and one of Rosanne standing as she is in the photo. He superimposed her into the record shop photo (Music City News magazine, August 1987).
