Rosanne Cash Named 2015 Artist-in-Residence at Country Music Hall of Fame
If you're a fan of Rosanne Cash, you'll want to head to Nashville this fall. She has been named the Country Music Hall of Fame's 2015 artist-in-residence and will take up her tenure in September.
Cash is scheduled for three unique and intimate concerts, each with a different theme.
The first concert, slated for Sept. 2, includes a full-band performance of her newest album, The River and the Thread. The record swept all three categories it was nominated in at the 2015 Grammy Awards. The singer and her band will also perform favorites from her entire career, which spans almost four decades.
The second performance, on Sept. 3, will feature special guests Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams and will mark the first time that all three women have taken the stage together for an entire evening.
The first two shows will take place in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's 800-seat CMA Theater, while the third installment will happen in the intimate Ford Theater. The third performance, on Sept. 24, will feature Cash and her husband John Leventhal, whose fingerprints are all over her career as producer, guitarist, co-writer and creative partner.
The Hall of Fame's annual artist residency, now in its 13th year, honors artists who have contributed significantly to country 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.
“Our annual artist residency is in its 13th year, and every year, audiences have been entertained and inspired by the creativity and generosity of our featured artists," says museum CEO Kyle Young. "Rosanne Cash, this year’s artist-in-residence, comes to us at the top of her game. On her latest release, The River and the Thread, Rosanne explores her deep roots in the South and delivers some of her best work in an already illustrious career.
"We are thrilled to welcome her for what are sure to be three unforgettable performances," Young adds. "It is a bonus that she takes the stage for her residency while her father is featured in a special museum exhibit, Dylan, Cash and the Nashville Cats.”
Ticket prices for Cash's shows range from $45 to $65 for the first two shows and are $85 for the third (plus ticketing fees). Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10AM on July 17 and can be purchased at ticketfly.com.
