Rosanne Cash

More than a country music icon, Rosanne Cash is America’s foremost musical woman of letters, a singularly literate artist whose poignant vocals turn every song into a revelatory tale. At the peak of her interpretive powers, she’s still riding high from the 2009 release of The List, an album distilled from a list of 100 essential country songs given to her at 18 by her father, the legendary Johnny Cash. Since her 1980 album debut with Right or Wrong, Rosanne has blazed a brilliant trail, landing nearly a dozen #1 country hit singles, while earning 10 Grammy nominations and a Best Female Country Vocal Performance Grammy Award in 1985 for “I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me.” Sony Legacy has just released The Essential Rosanne Cash, a 2-CD collection of her hand-picked hits. Cash’s creativity isn’t confined to the bandstand. Leading publications such as The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Oxford-American and New York Magazine have published her essays, columns and fiction. She’s also generated an acclaimed volume of short stories, Bodies of Water, and a fascinating memoir, Composed. Whether she’s writing prose or lyrics, Cash is a natural born storyteller who cuts to the bone. For this date expect an overview of her essential hits, with husband and guitarist John Leventhal to accompany.
