JOHNNY CASH: THE
One-hour music intensive special celebrates the release of American V: A Hundred Highways, the all-new Johnny Cash album from his last studio recordings before his death in September 2003.
The songs from these final sessions are presented along with exclusive comments by both producer Rick Rubin and the Man in Black, himself. This program is a great way to premiere these new songs before the CD is in stores from Lost Highway Records on July 4, 2006.
American V: A Hundred Highways includes the last song Cash wrote (“Like the 309”), in a stirring mix of covers and originals that Rick Rubin describes as “…Johnny's final statement. They are the truest reflection of the music that was central to his life at the time. This is the music that Johnny wanted us to hear.”
As an added bonus, Johnny Cash: The Last Highway also features Cash performing some of his best known tunes live from the 1994 Montreaux Jazz Festival.
