Kacey Musgraves, Brad Paisley And Others Feature On Upcoming Johnny Cash Tribute Album

Kacey Musgraves, Alison Krauss, King Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Brad Paisley are just some of the artists that will be featured on a new tribute album for the Man In Black called ‘Johnny Cash: Forever Words.’ Check out the trailer for the album above.

Johnny and June Carter Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, who is co-producing the album with Steve Berkowitz, enlisted a number of artists to put music to his dad’s unpublished poetry and writings. He explains,

“Determining the artist for each song was truly a matter of the heart. I picked the artists who are most connected with my father, who had a personal story that was connected with Dad. It became an exciting endeavour to go through these works, to put them together and present them to different people who could finish them in a way that I believed that Dad would have wanted.”

The album will be released on April 6th, but you can pre-order it now.
