Personalities | Rosanne Cash | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, songwriter, b. 1955)

Johnny Cash’s daughter topped the country charts 11 times in the 1980s, starting with ‘Seven Year Ache’ (1981). Ten were solo hits and ‘It’s Such A Small World’ (1988) a duet with her then-husband, Rodney Crowell. In 1985, she won a Grammy for Best Country Female Vocal Performance. Covering her father’s ‘Tennessee Flat Top Box’ from her King’s Record Shop album (1987), saw Cash come closest to Nashville, but she has never followed musical fashion.
