Clint Black and Rosanne Cash Find Their Roots

Clint Black and Rosanne Cash appeared on a recent episode of the popular PBS series Finding Your Roots hosted by Henry Louis Gates Jr..

Clint and Rosanne start by sharing their immediate family roots before delving deeper into their ancestry. Clint shared how his father was a hard sell when it came to telling him that Clint wanted to pursue country music for a living.

Rosanne’s dad is probably one of the best known figures in country music…Johnny Cash. But the complicated relationship of her parents along with Johnny’s drug use, delayed her having a total connection to her father.

While both Rosanne and Clint had some ideas about their family’s history, there are some surprises along the way that both please and create emotional connections to their pasts.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
