Johnny Cash: the Music - Forever Words / Various

Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Includes digital download. 2018 release, an album of Johnny Cash's unknown poetry, lyrics, and letters set to music by an astounding array of contemporary artists. Includes recordings by Ruston Kelly & Kacey Musgraves, Chris Cornell, Rosanne Cash, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Kris Kristofferson & Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, John Mellencamp, Elvis Costello, and others. For nearly 60 years, the words of Johnny Cash have reached across cultural, spiritual and ideological borders. He was not only a singer of great songs, but a teller of universal hard truths about justice, faith and independence. It is in this spirit the album, Johnny Cash: Forever Words, was created. When Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash passed, they left behind what their son and Johnny Cash: Forever Words producer, John Carter Cash, describes as a monstrous amassment of 'things' which included his father's handwritten letters, poems and documents, ranging through the entirety of his life. Over the past two years, a stellar cast of contemporary artists were invited by John Carter Cash to create new music to accompany these newly discovered Cash writings. These artists have adapted his words honestly and uniquely as they see fit, further showcasing the diversity and universality of Johnny Cash as a writer and storyteller.
