Premiere Event, Co-Hosted By The Museum and BMI, celebrates acclaimed Singer-Songwriter’s return to Nashville to showcase songs from The List

Due October 6th, The List features contemporary interpretations of songs from a list of Essential Country Songs passed on to Cash by her legendary father

With her first-ever covers album The List due from Manhattan Records on October 6, 2009, acclaimed singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash and her band will showcase several of its stunning songs at a very special invitation-only performance event at the Country Music Hall of Fame© and Museum in Nashville on September 15th, 2009.

Rosanne Cash has accepted this invitation to return to Nashville to showcase The List at an event co-hosted by the Museum and Broadcast Music, Inc. [BMI] as a way to honor her father Johnny’s legacy, as well as to pay tribute to the artists whose songs she re-interprets, and to the songs themselves. Each song was written or popularized by a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame or by an artist who seems destined for that honor. Most of the songs are licensed by BMI.

The List features Cash’s contemporary interpretations of 12 classic songs culled from a list of essential country tunes that Johnny gave her in 1973, and filtered through her own unique perspective.

Produced and arranged by Grammy Award winner John Leventhal (Cash’s husband), the album includes Cash’s covers of songs written and/or recorded by The Carter Family (“Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow”), Hank Williams (“Take These Chains From My Heart”), Jimmie Rodgers (“Miss The Mississippi and You”), Hank Cochran/Patsy Cline (“She’s Got You”), Merle Haggard (“Silver Wings”), and Bob Dylan (“Girl From the North Country,” famously done by Dylan and Johnny Cash in 1969).

“I could not think of a more perfect union of entities to launch The List than myself, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, which is the repository and protector of so many important treasures and artifacts of my family, and BMI, my performing-rights organization for the past 35 years, which comprises my entire life as a songwriter,” Cash says. “The songs on The List are the very songs that BMI and the Hall of Fame exist to honor, share, archive, and perpetuate. I am thrilled to premiere The List with the family-like support of both organizations, in a city where these songs have never faded in relevancy.”

“Rosanne’s new collection is as cutting edge and deeply personal as anything she has ever recorded,” says Museum Director Kyle Young. “By making them her own, she has made each of these historically important songs sound newly minted. With her quicksilver, drop-dead voice and careful interpretation of these golden standards, Rosanne gives us proof positive that the past has meaning in the present. As we endeavor to preserve the many chapters of country music’s evolving history so that new generations can understand and benefit from its cultural importance, we welcome Rosanne Cash as country-music royalty. We are honored to join BMI in presenting Rosanne’s premiere performance of music from The List.”

“This project combines a great BMI artist, Rosanne, and timeless songs with the blessing of Johnny Cash,” says Jody Williams, BMI’s vice president of writer-publisher relations. “This significant slice of BMI’s repertoire is cast in the most respectful and artistic light, so we’re very proud to be involved.”
