Rosanne Cash Information Continued
Born in 1955 in Memphis, Tennessee, Rosanne Cash grew up in southern California, but moved to Nashville after her high school graduation. She worked in her father's road show before setting out on her own. Rosanne Cash released her first single, a duet with Bobby Bare, in 1979, and two years later had her first country #1 (and the biggest hit commercially of her career), "Seven Year Ache", which also became a top forty pop hit.
Although Rosanne Cash was a prominent country star throughout the '80s, her music was anything but traditional. She topped the charts with songs written not only by herself, but by her father ("Tennessee Flat Top Box"), John Hiatt ("The Way We Make a Broken Heart"), Tom Petty ("Never Be You") and the Beatles ("I Don't Want to Spoil the Party"). "I Don't Know Why You Don't Want Me", which won her a Grammy in 1985, and "It's Such a Small World", a 1987 duet with Rodney Crowell on his album Diamonds & Dirt, provided further hits.
Rosanne Cash resurfaced in 2003 with Rules of Travel. The album features guest appearances by Sheryl Crow and Steve Earle, as well as a tune penned by Joe Henry and The Wallflowers' Jakob Dylan, another artist who knows about life as the offspring of a legend. Rosanne Cash's latest album, entitled Black Cadillac, was released in January of 2006 to high critical acclaim. Much of the album addresses the losses of her step-mother, her father, her step-sister and then finally her mother on Cash's fiftieth birthday.
