Cawood has mined a rich depth of songwriting ore, pulling the struggle from her very soul.
“Deep Down in Your Bones” is a song about the troubled life of a mother and how it reflects on her daughter. Mother’s Day has always been hard for me. My mother was one of eight kids raised in a dirt floor cabin in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. By the time she was fifteen she proposed to my dad. There were too many mouths to feed. I’m pretty sure she was not happily married. So yeah, she made her share of wrong choices and hence, so did I. I don’t want you to think I didn’t love my mother. She was only human, not terrible. — Cheryl Cawood
