"You have to be ruthless," Grammy Award–winning singer...
"You have to be ruthless," Grammy Award–winning singer and songwriter Rosanne Cash told four songwriting students who took the stage one by one in the Granoff Center’s Martinez auditorium.
If your favorite line doesn’t work within the structure and rhyme pattern of a song, Cash said—kiss it goodbye. That advice was about the most ruthless part of an otherwise very encouraging songwriting master class and performance by Cash, the daughter of country legend Johnny Cash, and her husband John Leventhal, also an award-winning songwriter. The River, an album they co-wrote, won three Grammys in 2015. http://bit.ly/2CIUWsc (
