Johnny Cash

Today marks the release of Johnny Cash: Forever Words, a collection of songs created from Johnny Cash’s unused poetry, lyrics, and letters. Subscribers of Apple Music and Spotify can stream it in full.

A companion to the best-selling book collection, Forever Words: The Unknown Poems, which compiles never-before-published poetry by Cash, the compilation features contributors like Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson, eldest daughter Rosanne Cash, stepdaughter Carlene Carter, country singer Kacey Musgraves, and Alison Krauss & Union Station. Forever Words also includes the final known recording of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, who recorded a song called “You Never Knew My Mind” before his death in May 2017.

Johnny Cash: Forever Words was recorded primarily at The Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee and was curated by Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, who also serves as co-producer along with Steve Berkowitz.
