Rosanne Cash Making Her Own Path

Rosanne was able to pave her own path. With the release of her song “I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me” in 1986, she won her first Grammy. The song won in the category of Best Female Country Vocal Performance.

Not wanting to limit her music to country, she made sure that she can also do other genres. Her music included folk, pop, rock, blues, and most notably Americana.

She made sure that not only will she explore other genres, but she will also excel in it. This is proved by her 2015 Grammy wins. She won Best Americana Album for The River & the Thread, Best American Roots Song with John Leventhal, and Best American Roots Performance for A Feather’s Not A Bird.

Her songwriting skills are also worth taking note. In 2015, she was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Now, that is how you make your legendary father proud.

She is proving that music is not the only thing that she is good at. She is also a songwriter and author. In fact, she wrote the New York Times Bestseller Composed: A Memoir in 2010 about her life growing up.

In 2018, she signed with ICM Partners and finished an album entitled  “She Remembers Everything.” She released it back in November 2018.
