Johnny Cash vinylWhen someone as legendary as Johnny Cash passes away you will always expect some previously unheard material to surface.

For this project we hear the words of Cash – discovered poetry, lyrics and letters – put into song by artists who had a personal connection to the man, and the result is a musical companion to the best-selling book Forever Words: The Unknown Poems. Curated and produced by John Carter Cash and Steve Berkowitz, The Music features new performances by Chris Cornell, Elvis Costello, Rosanne Cash, The Jayhawks, Alison Krauss & Union Station, John Mellencamp, Kris Kristofferson with Willie Nelson, and more. A special and personal insight into a master of song.

Johnny Cash: Forever Words (The Music) is out now via Sony.
