Continuing the legend: Rosanne Cash to present memoir in Raleigh

If you’re any kind of a fan of Johnny Cash, you’ll know of his talented and oldest offspring, Rosanne Cash. Not only has she continued the Cash legend, but she herself has taken the name a great many strides forward in the world of music and literary arts. In her 30+year career, she has thus far released 12 albums and has had 11 #1 singles, with her most recent album release in fall 2009. She has also written a book of short stories, a children’s book, essays and work fiction, and, most recently, her memoir.

This nationally and internationally renowned musician will be coming to Raleigh to promote her soon to be released book Composed:a Memoir.

“Now, in her memoir, Cash writes compellingly about her upbringing in Southern California as the child of country legend Johnny Cash, and of her relationships with her mother and her famous stepmother, June Carter Cash. In her account of her development as an artist she shares memories of a hilarious stint as a twenty-year-old working for Columbia Records in London; recording her own first album on a German label; working her way to success; her marriage to Rodney Crowell, a union that made them Nashville’s premier couple; her relationship with the country music establishment; taking a new direction in her music and leaving Nashville to move to New York; motherhood; dealing with the deaths of her parents, in part through music; the process of songwriting; and the fulfillment she has found with her current husband and musical collaborator, John Leventhal.”
