Rosanne Cash Contest


October 6, 2009, Johnny Cash’s daughter Rosanne Cash will be releasing her 12th studio album, The List, on Manhattan Records.  It features a complimentary collection of country songs that were given to Rosanne in 1973 from her father.   After undergoing brain surgery for a benign condition, she listened and gathered her own interpretation from this list of music.  With help from Bruce Springsteen, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Rufus Wainwright  and production by her Grammy-Award winning husband John Leventhal, Rosanne Cash classically covers, uses her style and turns them into a creation of her very own.

“If my father had been a martial arts master, he might have passed a martial arts ‘secret’ on to me, his oldest child,” Cash says. “If he had been a surgeon, he might have taken me into his operating room and pointed out the arteries and organs. If he were a robber baron, he might have surveyed his empire and said, ‘Honey, some day this will all be yours!’. But he was a musician and a songwriter, and he gave me The List.”

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle Maree, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
