Rosanne Cash Song Benefits Hurricane Sandy Victims

Like many of her peers, Rosanne Cash is doing her part to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The singer/songwriter is premiering her cover of the bluegrass song "Lonesome River" from the album The Storm Is Passing Over, a project designed to help relief efforts for the hurricane victims.

The album is a collection of traditional American songs that center around storms and floods, and was put into motion after Hurricane Sandy rocked parts of the East Coast earlier this year. The Mason Jar Music record label brought together some of its musician friends who live in New York to record the album and support ongoing relief work in New York City and other nearby areas.

Rosanne, who has lived in New York City for several years, recently headlined a benefit concert in Red Hook, a Brooklyn suburb, to help with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Check out her version of "Lonesome River" on
