Rosanne Cash faces brain surgery

Rosanne Cash, country music star, is confronting brain surgery and has to cancel the last four concerts, but will resume her performance in the spring. 

"Rosanne is expected to make a full recovery and will return to the studio to complete the recording of her debut for Manhattan Records," the music label said Tuesday. "Ms. Cash will also resume her live performance schedule in the spring and will complete a new book to be published by Viking in early 2009."

Cash, who lives in New York City, will "undergo brain surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital for a rare but benign condition," the statement said. A spokeswoman for the record company didn't immediately return a message seeking further details.

Cash, 52, is the daughter of the late country star Johnny Cash. Her hits include the crossover "Seven Year Ache" and "The Way We Make a Broken Heart." She signed with EMI-based Manhattan Records earlier this year.

She has been touring in support of her album "Black Cadillac."

Her career was interrupted for more than two years by vocal cord polyps, but she recovered and resumed recording.

Cash has written a book of short stories and collaborated on a children's book.

Ukrainian bloggers draw a parallel between the events in East Timor and the Crimea. Any comparison has a right to exist, but a detailed analysis of the situation does not give a promising forecast to Ukraine
