Currently touring in support of her Grammy nominated album “Black Cadillac,” singer/songwriter/author Rosanne Cash has canceled her four remaining concerts this year in order to undergo brain surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital for a rare but benign condition. She is expected to make a full recovery and will resume her live performance schedule in the spring and complete a new book to be published by Viking in early 2009. Cash will return to the studio to complete the recording of her debut for Manhattan Records.

“I am very proud to have Rosanne Cash on our roster,” said Ian Ralfini, general manger of Manhattan Records, in a statement. “She is an extremely talented singer, writer and performer. We all wish her a speedy recovery and look forward to having her back in the studio soon.”
