"Composed" is a collection of memories that highlight Rosanne's life, constantly surrounded by music, and her relationship with her father and his second wife, June Carter Cash. Penguin Group (USA)

With Johnny Cash as her father and over 14 albums under her belt, it’s no doubt that music runs through Rosanne Cash’s veins. In her new memoir Composed, Cash recounts her childhood, marred by her famous father’s routine absence and drug use, and her rise to country music fame. “Composed” is a collection of memories that highlight her life, constantly surrounded by music, and her relationship with her father and his second wife, June Carter Cash. Patt talks with Rosanne about her transition from “Johnny Cash’s daughter” to a country music star.

*Rosanne will be speaking tonight at 7:30 at The Saban Theater as part of the American Voices Series. She will also be signing copies of her book tomorrow night at 7 at the Borders in Torrance.

Guest:

Rosanne Cash, daughter of Johnny Cash and author of Composed
