Thursday 6/3/21 12pm ET: Artist Countdown: Rosanne Cash Top 30 Hits @rosannecash

Rosanne Cash, an American singer-songwriter, has released fourteen studio albums, six compilation albums, one tribute album, and 39 singles. The daughter of Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash recorded her self-titled debut album in 1978 under the German label Ariola. After signing with Columbia Records in 1979, Cash’s second studio album Right or Wrong was released. Its lead single “No Memories Hangin’ Around” (a duet with Bobby Bare) reached the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Cash’s third studio release, Seven Year Ache (1981) gained major success when the title track peaked at number one on the Billboard Country chart, followed by “My Baby Thinks He’s a Train” and “Blue Moon with a Heartache,” which also reached the top spot. The album’s follow-up effort, Somewhere in the Stars (1982) produced three Top 20 hits on the Billboard chart. After a 3-year hiatus, Cash issued Rhythm & Romance in 1985, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums list. It spawned four Top 10 singles. This included the number one single, “I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me,” which won the Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 1986. Her sixth album, King’s Record Shop was released in 1987. The album peaked at number six on the country albums chart and certified gold in the United States. The four singles released from King’s Record Shop all reached number one on the Billboard Country chart between 1987 and 1988, including a cover of Johnny Cash’s “Tennessee Flat-Top Box.”

In 1990, Cash released her seventh studio recording, Interiors, which gained critical acclaim by music critics, but only produced one Top 40 single, “What We Really Want.” Her next release, The Wheel (1993) was Cash’s final release for Columbia and did not spawn any major hits. In 1996, 10 Song Demo, an eleven-track album of demo recordings, was released on Capitol Records. Cash returned to recording 2003 with her eleventh studio release, Rules of Travel, which was produced by her husband, John Leventhal on Capitol. It was followed by 2006’s Black Cadillac, which reflected upon the death of her father, her mother, and stepmother. In October 2009, she issued her thirteenth studio release, The List, which was based on a personal list given to her by her father that he considered to be the “one hundred essential country songs.”

Monday 5/25/20 12pm ET: Feature Artist – Rosanne Cash


Rosanne Cash (born May 24, 1955) is an American singer-songwriter and author. She is the eldest daughter of country musician Johnny Cash and Vivian Liberto Cash Distin, Johnny Cash’s first wife.

Although Cash is often classified as a country artist, her music draws on many genres, including folk, pop, rock, blues, and most notably Americana. In the 1980s, she had a string of chart-topping singles, which crossed musical genres and landed on both the country and pop charts, the most commercially successful being her 1981 breakthrough hit “Seven Year Ache”, which topped the U.S. country singles charts and reached the Top 30 on the U.S. pop singles charts.

In 1990, Cash released Interiors, a spare, introspective album which signaled a break from her pop country past.

The following year, in 1991, Cash ended her marriage and moved from Nashville to New York City, where she has continued to write, record, and perform. Since 1991 she has released six albums, written three books, and edited a collection of short stories. Her fiction and essays have been published in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Oxford American, New York Magazine, and other periodicals and collections.

Cash won a Grammy Award in 1985 for “I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me” and has received 12 other Grammy nominations. She has had 11 No. 1 country hit singles, 21 Top 40 country singles, and two gold records. Cash was the 2014 recipient of Smithsonian magazine’s American Ingenuity Award in the Performing Arts category.

On February 8, 2015, Cash won three Grammy awards for Best Americana Album for The River & the Thread, Best American Roots Song with John Leventhal and Best American Roots Performance for A Feather’s Not A Bird.

Cash was honored further on October 11, 2015, when she was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Cash was portrayed, as a child, by Hailey Anne Nelson in Walk the Line, the 2005 Academy-award-winning film about her father’s life.

Thursday 10pm: Feature LP: Rosanne Cash – She Remembers Everything (2018)

Dreams still beckon in a damaged world, and Rosanne Cash renders them with fierce grace on She Remembers Everything, a studio recording arriving November 2 from Blue Note Records. The follow-up to Cash’s 2014 release The River & the Thread, recipient of 3 Grammys including Best Americana Album, the album offers shimmering pop—with hints of twang and jazz—that could find a home in almost any year of postwar American music. But the luminescence and bright production are shot through with a darker vision, trenchant vocals, minor chords, and bent notes that destabilize the landscape. Familiar yet alien, Cash’s take on being a woman in the world reveals just how much has gone awry.

Closing out the four decades Cash has spent as a recording artist, She Remembers Everything contains echoes of nearly all her previous styles. Listeners familiar with “Seven Year Ache” or Interiors will recognize the knowing ache of this record. Those who listened to recordings and live shows in subsequent years—which have included residencies at the San Francisco Jazz Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Library of Congress—will likewise find the literary voice that has framed her more recent music. Cash’s time focused on roots music also lends a classic form to her songwriting that makes it universal and timeless. – Amazon

Artist Countdown: Elvis Costello Top 45 Hits @ElvisCostello

elvis-costelloElvis Costello (born Declan Patrick MacManus; 25 August 1954) is an English singer-songwriter. He began his career as part of London’s pub rock scene in the early 1970s and later became associated with the first wave of the British new wave movement of the mid-to-late 1970s. His critically acclaimed debut album, My Aim Is True, was recorded in 1976. Shortly after recording his first album, he formed The Attractions as his backing band. They toured and recorded together for the better part of a decade, though differences between Costello and members of The Attractions caused them to split by 1986. Much of Costello’s work since 1986 has been credited to him as a solo artist, though partial reunions with some members of The Attractions have been credited to the group over the years.

Steeped in wordplay, the vocabulary of Costello’s lyrics is broader than that of most popular songs. His music has drawn on many diverse genres; one critic described him as a “pop encyclopaedia”, able to “reinvent the past in his own image”.

Costello has won multiple awards in his career, including a Grammy Award, and has twice been nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Male. In 2003, Elvis Costello and the Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked Costello number 80 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.  (Source: Wikipedia)
