Rosanne Cash Wins Best American Roots Performance at the 2015 Grammy Awards
Rosanne Cash won her first Grammy in decades when she received the trophy for Best American Roots Performance at the 2015 Grammy Awards. The songstress won for 'A Feather's Not a Bird,' a song from her acclaimed album ‘The River & the Thread.’
"The last time I won a Grammy, Reagan was president!" an exuberant Cash said after taking the stage. She thanked Blue Note Records and co-writer and producer John Leventhal before adding, "Thank you to all the fans who have stuck with me for 30-plus years."
The win was the first of three for Cash at the ceremony. Moments later, she captured Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Song as well. 'A Feather's Not a Bird' was the opening track on 'The River & the Thread,' which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Folk chart.
In winning Best American Roots Performance -- a brand-new Grammy category for 2015 that incorporates music from Americana, bluegrass, blues, folk and regional roots music -- Cash beat out Gregg Allman and Taj Mahal, Billy Childs with Alison Krauss and Jerry Douglas, Keb' Mo' and Nickel Creek.
