Song of the Day: 'If There's a God on My Side' by Rosanne Cash

Congratulations to Rosanne Cash for being awarded the prestigious Edward MacDowell Medal, an honor previously bestowed upon such greats as Toni Morrison, Stephen Sondheim and Georgia O’Keeffe, among others.

In a statement issued through MacDowell, Cash said she was “profoundly humbled” to receive an award that Morrison and others had been given. “I do not place myself in any way equal, but I accept this honor with deepest gratitude, as an encouragement to do my best work, and in the service of future inspiration. My heart is full with this precious recognition,” she said.

Such well-deserved recognition, in my humble opinion.

Here's a standout track from her 1993 album, "The Wheel," which was her first collaboration with the man who would become her life partner in and out of the studio, John Leventhal.

That is one of the best albums of that decade! I still get a lot of play out of it!
