If you love the music of Johnny Cash, you’re sure to be a fan of his daughter, Rosanne Cash.

An American singer-songwriter known for many genres like country, folk and pop, Cash brings her incredible talent to the Jemison Concert Hall stage on Friday, October 21—and we are pumped!

With four Grammy wins and 11 Grammy nominations under her belt, Rosanne’s one of the country’s most distinguished singer-songwriters. Recently, her 1981 album Seven Year Ache was ranked #20 on Rolling Stone‘s list of 100 Greatest Country Albums of All Time.

Cash’s prowess doesn’t stop on stage, either. She’s also the author of four books, one being her best-selling memoir Composed.

Bonus: Rosanne will also sing music by the late Loretta Lynn—long-time friend and musical partner of Johnny Cash.

During an inspirational evening on Thursday, November 10, you have the exciting opportunity to not only see her but meet her as well.

The Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media was recently honored with the Governors Award at the Emmy Awards, “in recognition of their efforts to promote gender balance and foster inclusion throughout the entertainment industry.”
