Rosanne Cash will join an elite group in September when she becomes the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s 2015 artist-in-residence. The singer-songwriter, who earned numerous honors, including three Grammys for her outstanding 2014 album, The River and the Thread, will present a trio of intimate performances on September 2nd, 3rd and 24th, at 7:00 p.m. The first two performances will be held in the museum’s 800-seat CMA Theater, with the latter held at the more intimate Ford Theater. Each performance will spotlight a different theme and will include special guests.
On September 2nd, Cash will present a full-band performance of The River and the Thread for the first time in Nashville, along with several favorites from the 15 albums she has recorded throughout her career. In a rare “only in Nashville” event, the second evening (September 3rd) will feature Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams joining Cash and marking the first time all three artists have shared the stage for an entire evening. On September 24th, Cash will be joined by her husband, producer, guitarist, and creative collaborator John Leventhal.
Now in its 13th year, the museum’s annual artist residency honors musicians who have contributed significantly to popular American music. Past honorees include Cowboy Jack Clement, Earl Scruggs, Tom T. Hall, Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Douglas, Vince Gill, Buddy Miller, Connie Smith, Kenny Rogers, Ricky Skaggs, and Alan Jackson.
Rosanne’s father, Country Music Hall of Famer Johnny Cash, is currently featured in a special museum exhibit, “Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats,” which was celebrated earlier this week with a free outdoor concert in downtown Nashville.
