Singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash has been nominated for a 2011 Grammy Award for “Best Americana Album” for The List. This is Cash’s eleventh career nomination, including a nomination last year for “Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals” for “Sea of Heartbreak,” a duet with Bruce Springsteen that appears on The List. She won a Grammy Award in 1985 for “Best Country Vocal Performance, Female” for “I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me.”

The List also won “Album of The Year” at the 2010 Americana Music Honors and Awards Show in September. Cash’s first-ever covers album, The List is a collection of 12 classic songs she selected from a list of “100 Essential Country Songs” that her legendary father Johnny Cash gave her when she was a teenager. The album has earned widespread praise from media outlets across the country, including NPR Music, Vanity Fair, The New York Times, Associated Press, USA Today, Time, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, People, The Los Angeles Times, Billboard, Elle, Paste, Relix, American Songwriter, and The San Francisco Chronicle.

In August, Cash published Composed: A Memoir (Viking), in which she shares her recollections growing up as Johnny Cash’s eldest daughter and coming into her own as a performer, daughter, and mother. Composed appeared on The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post bestseller lists and was recently chosen as one of the Top 100 books of the year by Publishers Weekly, which called it “a rare treat” and Cash “a terrific writer.”

Over the course of her career, Cash has recorded fourteen albums, including 1981’s gold Seven Year Ache and 1987’s gold King’s Record Shop, and charted 21 Top 40 country singles, 11 of which climbed to No. 1. The List debuted in the Top 5 on the Country chart and entered the Billboard Top 200 at No. 22. Cash is also the author of Bodies of Water and the children’s book Penelope Jane: A Fairy’s Tale. Her essays and fiction have been published in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and New York magazine.

The Grammy Awards will be handed out at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 13th, 2011.
