The 63-year-old Rosanne Cash may be the daughter of Johnny Cash, but she made her own way in the music industry. 


Rosanne is the eldest of Cash's four daughters from his first marriage with Vivian Liberto. Cash also had a son with his second wife, June Carter. 

Most of Cash's children followed in his musical footsteps, and Rosanne has the record sales to prove it. She is also the spitting image of her late father. 



Rosanne was raised in the industry and was exposed to the creative atmosphere from a young age. From going on tours to working as Cash's dresser. 

As a child, she would Johnny Cash on stage and sing backing vocals. This experienced prepared her for a career as a singer. 



She released two albums during the eighties, titled "Right or Wrong," and "Seven Year Ache." Both albums were a success and propelled her to fame. 

In 2014 she released an album titled "The River and the Thread. She received critical acclaim for her work, and the album reached Number on American radio. 


Rosanne was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2015 and signed up last year with ICM Partners for a new album. 

"She Remembers Everything" was released in November 2018. The album is available on most streaming sites, including iTunes, Google Play and Spotify. 



Not only does Rosanne credit her father for helping mold her career, but she also has a lot of praise for her stepmother, June Carter. 

Rosanne was only 11 years old when John Cash divorced from Liberto, and his four daughters accepted Carter with open arms. 

Carter had to two children from a previous marriage and shared a son with Cash as well. Carter once said in an interview that she gave birth to three, but is a mother-of-seven. 

Rosanne recalled that being a mother was Carter's number one job, and said she never referred to them as her "stepchildren." They were just her children. She added: 

‘She [Carter] did not give birth to me, but she helped me give birth to my future.’
