Rosanne Cash Awarded Esteemed MacDowell Arts Medal

The eldest daughter of foundational musician Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash is a best-selling artist, writer and the four-time Grammy Award winner who had released 14 studio albums, including her 1981 No.1 country album, Seven Year Ache.

In an official statement, the artist shared that she was “Profoundly humbled” to be among the past honourees. She added that “I do not place myself in any way equal, but I accept this honour with deepest gratitude, as an encouragement to do my best work, and in the service of future inspiration. My heart is full with this precious recognition”.

Each year since 1960, the awards committee picks one recipient and one presentation speaker who is familiar with the winner’s work. Individuals are chosen from one of several rotating artistic disciplines, including music, theatre, writing, architecture, visual arts and film. Cash joins a hallowed group of musical artists, including jazz icon Sonny Rollins (2010), Leonard Bernstein (1987) and Stephen Sondheim (2013). Other recipients include author Toni Morrison, director David Lynch and playwright Edward Albee.
