(Nashville, Tenn. — February 14, 2017) — American singer-songwriter Ana Cristina Cash is to release her latest project, The Tough Love EP, featuring co-written material with husband and producer, John Carter Cash, on March 14th. This highly anticipated body of work encourages with confidence and southern attitude.
since I was a child, music has been my most trustworthy companion. I
have always taken it everywhere with me. It fills me up completely and
I’ve never felt alone,” said Cash. “I remember feeling the
music deep in my bones. I still do. When I began songwriting, I merged
melodies and music to paint a picture of the inner workings of my soul.
No matter the human framework of a tough, guarded exterior, the mind and
emotions are dazzlingly complex. The Tough Love EP is my own personal
sonic spectrum of these inner complexities.”
Recorded at the historical Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, The Tough Love EP
showcases Cash’s vocal range with brilliant ease and rootsy soul.
Influenced by long nights of singing in dusty bar rooms and hours
turning up scratched blues and rockabilly vinyl records, Cash reaches
deep as her songs explore and surpass new boundaries. A focal track on
the project is a unique interpretation of John Anderson’s “Seminole Wind” in which was exclusively featured via Country Rebel. The first single from the EP, “Tough Love Woman” will be available soon.
“The songs on her new record have ‘a dark and mysterious flair,’ and that flair is obvious in ‘Seminole Wind,’” said Country Rebel. “Her rendition is beautifully haunting, so much in fact that it is sure to give you goosebumps when you hear it.”

The title track, “Tough Love Woman,” written with master songwriter Shawn Camp,
