Singer/songwriter Rosanne Cash and the duo America are set for performances at The University of Texas at Tyler’s Cowan Center.
Cash will bring her Black List River national tour to the concert hall on Saturday and America’s concert is set for Nov. 2. Both will take place at 7:30 p.m. and tickets for both are available in advance at cowancenter.org.
Cash will perform songs paying homage to her Southern heritage and family ties. Some of the songs date back to her “Black Cadillac” album released in 2006, shortly after the deaths of her father and stepmother, legendary country music singers Johnny and June Carter Cash, and her mother Vivian Liberto.
The concert also features songs from her albums “The List,” released in 2009 and the Grammy winning “The River and the Thread,” released in 2014.
She will share the stage with her husband, John Leventhal, who also is her longtime writing collaborator, music director and guitarist.
Cash’s music includes many genres, most notably folk and Americana. She gained national attention after her 1981 hit “Seven-Year Ache.”
Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell have been performing as America for more than 40 years.
The duo won a Grammy as Best New Artist in 1972 and went on to release a series of hit songs including their signature song, “A Horse With No Name.”
Their hits also include “I Need You,” “Ventura Highway,” “Don’t Cross the River,” “Tin Man,” “Lonely People” and “Sister Golden Hair.”
