Rosanne Cash has been named Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s 2015 artist-in-residence. Cash has recorded 15 albums and is the recipient of three Grammys for her latest album, The River and the Thread. As artist-in-residence, she will perform on September 2, 3, and 24, at 7:00 p.m. with a different theme and lineup of guest artists each night.

Established in 2003, the museum’s annual residency program honors a “musical master who can be credited with contributing a large and significant body of work to the canon of American popular music.” Cash joins a prestigious group of past honorees that includes 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.

The first evening, September 2, will feature a full-band performance of her Grammy-winning album The River and the Thread. The concert will also include favorites from her nearly four decade career. The second evening, September 3, will feature special guests Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams, marking the first time all three women have shared the stage for an entire evening. Both performances will take place in the museum’s 800-seat CMA Theater. The third installment of the residency, September 24, will be held in the museum’s more intimate Ford Theater and will feature Cash with her husband, producer, guitarist, co-writer and creative partner (sounds like a pretty crowded stage) John Leventhal.

“We are thrilled to welcome her for what are sure to be three unforgettable performances,” Museum CEO Kyle Young said. “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.”
