After that, she moved to Los Angeles, and enrolled at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute in Hollywood. In 1978 out came her first full-length, self-titled album, but the album was it was never released in USA, as it was recorded in Munich, Germany, and was released by German record label Ariola.

Just a year later she released her third album and proved that third time is the charm, as her album “Seven Year Ache” topped the US Country chart and achieved platinum status, and spawned hits such as “My Baby Thinks He`s a Train” and “Blue Moon with Heartache”, which only made her more popular. Rosanne continued successfully during the ‘80s, releasing such albums as “Somewhere in the Stars” (1982), which reached No. 6 on the US Country chart, then “Rhythm & Romance”, which became her second album to top the charts, followed by “King`s Record Shop”, which achieved gold status, increasing Rosanne`s net worth to a large degree.

Her next album called “Interiors” was released in 1990, which she produced herself and wrote most of the songs; the album reached No. 23 on the US Country chart, and received positive reviews. However, her popularity began to decline, and her next albums “The Wheel” (1993), and “10 Song Demo” (1996), didn`t chart to the level of her previous albums. Nevertheless, she returned through the big door in the early 2000s when she released the album “Rules of Travel”, which spawned the hit song “September When It Comes”, featuring Johnny Cash, one of the last songs he finished before his death. Her next album came out in 2006, entitled “Black Cadilac”, and she has recorded and released two more albums “The List” (2009), which peaked at No. 5 on the US Country chart and No. 2 on the US Rock chart, and “The River & the Thread” (2014), which reached No. 2 on the US Country chart and became her best charting album on the US Billboard 200, landing at No. 11.
