Rosanne Cash has been one of the most compelling figures in popular music for more than three decades. Her remarkable body of work is noted for its emotional acuity, rich and resonant imagery, and unsparing honesty; these special qualities enable her to establish a unique intimacy with her audiences.

The eldest daughter of country music icon Johnny Cash and stepdaughter of June Carter Cash of the legendary Carter Family, Rosanne’s musical and family legacy is rooted in the very beginnings of American country music with its deep cultural and historical connections to the South. Her own thoughtful, genre-blurring approach, which encompasses country, rock, roots and pop influences, has garnered her a Grammy, 12 Grammy nominations and 11 No.1 singles.

In 2009, Cash recorded The List, an album of 12 songs from the list of “100 essential country songs” that her father compiled for her—and instructed her to learn—when she was 18 and about to join his road show. The List received two Grammy nominations and won the Americana Music Association Awards’ 2010 Album of the Year. For her most recent release, Cash collaborated with her husband John Leventhal to write The River and the Thread, lauded by USA Today as “a captivating … album that’s among the finest of her career.”
