One of America’s preeminent singer-songwriters, Rosanne Cash has released fifteen albums of extraordinary songs that have earned four Grammy Awards and twelve additional nominations.
In addition to regular touring, Cash has partnered in programming collaborations with Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, SFJAZZ, the Minnesota Orchestra, and the Library of Congress. Her contribution to music has been recognised through numerous awards, including receiving the SAG/AFTRA Lifetime Achievement Award for Sound Recordings in 2012 and the 2014 Smithsonian Ingenuity Award in the Performing Arts. She is also one of only a handful of women to be elected to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Beyond music, Cash is an author whose four books include the best-selling memoir Composed, which the Chicago Tribune called “one of the best accounts of an American life you’ll likely ever read.” Her essays have appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Oxford American, The Nation, and many more print and online publications.
In 2021, Cash received the Edward MacDowell Medal, awarded since 1960 to an artist who has made an outstanding contribution to American culture. She is the first woman composer to receive this prestigious honour.
World of Strange Design
By Rosanne Cash
Written by: John Leventhal, Rosanne Cash
This room was filled with trouble
And sacraments deceived
And I’m with you, we’re in the shade
Of his weeping willow tree
If Jesus came from Mississippi
If tears began to rise
I’ll have to go back to the beginning
In this world of strange design
Together Through Art & Music
