Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash

As the daughter of Johnny Cash, singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash describes her life as "circumscribed by music." But, it's through her love of language and quantum mechanics that she's finding new sources of creativity and mathematical ways to think about the divine. The mother of five shares her perspectives on being present, Twitter as a "boot camp for songwriters," and how she wrestles with love and grief through her music.

There's a great story Rosanne Cash tells about her father Johnny Cash, and a special performance at Carnegie Hall in 1994. As we were producing this segment, we longed to hear the original. What did they sound like together? How did Johnny Cash introduce his daughter? How did the crowd respond? Well, we looked around for a copy, any copy of this special moment — but came up empty. That is, until we found a bootleg copy. A truly remarkable story.

A playful duet between one of country music's greats and one of America's favorite children's authors — with a touching solo tribute to his father.
