Singer, songwriter and daughter of The Man In Black literally reclaims her voice. By Kyle Mullin for New Brunswick’s Telegraph Journal, Wednesday July 6th 2011

She was stifled, unsure of herself. Rosanne Cash had lost her voice this year for the second time in her life. But this time the country star feared she might never sing another note.

“It really shook my self-esteem to the core,” the singer says of the polyp (abnormal tissue growth) that robbed her of her most precious gift for several weeks this year, just as she was about to begin studio sessions on Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges’ upcoming debut album.

The ailment was nearly as maiming as the first polyp that silenced her for two-and-a-half years in 1998.

“My singing voice was gone (both times), and then I sounded really scratchy when I was speaking.”
