While her last name may be the first thing that catches your attention, her compelling vocals will make you stick around. Meet, Ana Cristina Cash, a Miami, FL native who has found her home in Nashville. The gifted songstress, who released The Tough Love EP on March 14th, appeared this week on Music City Roots, wowing both the live audience and those tuning in online equally.
Being a part of one of country music’s favorite families sure makes the stories interesting.
