Rosanne Cash to undergo brain surgery
Tuesday, November 6, 2007
– Rosanne Cash announced Tuesday she will undergo brain surgery at a New York hospital for a "rare but benign condition," according to her web site.
The exact problem was not disclosed.
"Rosanne is expected to make a full recovery and will return to the studio to complete the recording of her debut for Manhattan Records," the web site said.
The surgery will be held at Presbyterian Hospital, but no date was announced for the surgery.
Cash canceled her four remaining concerts this year, but will resume her live performance schedule in the spring and will complete a new book to be published by Viking in early 2009.
She has currently been touring in support of her well-received and Grammy-nominated "Black Cadillac" album.
