Rosanne Cash sets summer shows ahead of 2014 release
Rosanne Cash news, tour dates, photos and tickets">Rosanne Cash will precede a forthcoming new album with a slew of summer appearances, some with her band and others as a duo with her husband/guitarist John Leventhal.
The 57-year-old daughter of Johnny Cash will take to the road later this week, beginning with a June 14 performance in Galax, VA. A dozen summer stops across North America follow, including several shows throughout the Canadian provinces.
Most festival performances will feature Cash backed by her band, while many of the auditorium and theater gigs are billed as a duo with Leventhal.
The award-winning songstress is preparing for the January release of a brand-new album that focuses on the American South, according to a recent interview with Metro New York. She was partially inspired by the Arkansas State University-sponsored restoration of her father's childhood home in Dyess, AR.
"My heart started to swell," Cash said. "The region is really the bed of where this music came from. The connection to that music is so profound to me."
Earlier this week (6/5), the elder Cash was honored with a Forever Stamp by the U.S. Postal Service commemorating his music as part of the Music Icons series.
"It would be so special to him," the younger Cash said about the stamp unveiling. "He's now going to be touring the planet forever. And that's what he loved, he loved touring."
