Rosanne Cash Recovers From Brain Surgery

December 13, 2007

Singer/songwriter Rosanne Cash, eldest child of Johnny Cash and his first wife (Vivian), is recovering after brain surgery in late November. Cash was forced to cancel the final four concerts (including a mainstage performance at the 41st Kent State Folk Festival) supporting her CD Black Cadillac. The 52 year-old artist was operated on for a Type 1 Chiari malformation, a rare, but benign, structural defect that affects balance. She is expected to complete a new CD early in 2008, along with a book project.

Roseanne, I was an "on-air personality" (a volunteer position) on a public radio station when I discovered your beautiful and unique voice about 8 years ago. I'm so happy to hear that you are okay and that you are involved in making more music!!!! Keep up the creativity! I really enjoy your voice and your style, just be you and make more. . .
