John Carter Cash Co-Producing Johnny Cash: Forever Words Has A Lot to Say About his father

John Carter Cash wrote his book House of Cash: The Legacies of My Father, in 2011. Here, he wrote about how his heart always seemed to be connected to Johnny Cash’s pen whenever he sees him sit down to write. Whenever he reads his father’s handwritten words, John always feels close to the spirit of Johnny Cash. When Johnny Cash died in 2003, he left a body of incomplete work that Carter Cash has collected into the new album, Johnny Cash: Forever Words. It is a musical mate to the bestselling book of his father’s unpublished writing Forever Words: The Unknown Poems.

The Album, Its Producer, Cash’s Memory

John Carter Cash is the album’s co-producer and recorded the project at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee. People are asking him why he dug up these old words. He thought that his father’s words pleaded to be heard and that he felt,

“There’s my dad again. It was coming back in contact with the full range of his personality.”

As insightful as his father’s words are, Carter Cash describes him as a smart editor of himself who never shied away from the impulsiveness in his work. Cash’s memory is undying through his words and music. Remembering him as an artist who led tours with Elvis Presley, state jails, military entertainment tours overseas and prime-time television shows, he endures unifying country fans who embody all walks of life in spirit.

Additional Praises from John Carter Cash to his father, Johnny Cash

When asked for his views on how his father’s music would unify America amidst the issues it faces today, Carter Cash said,

“My father was a patriot. My father was a humanitarian, but he didn’t side one way or another with any certain rights groups. He just believed in people.”

In addition, he explained that Johnny Cash wore black for those who couldn’t express themselves. He wore it as a reminder of the grief and tussles that are out there. He didn’t point the finger. Instead, he paid attention to where no one else looked. His father did not believe in war, rebellion and ferocity, but he supported the young men who fought for our freedom. He added,

“But if you knew the man, then you knew the truth. And that’s all within his writing, and that’s all within Forever Words.”

Johnny Cash: Forever Words will be available on April 6. The album transfers Cash’s original works into new songs performed by Rosanne Cash, Brad Paisley, Alison Krauss & Union Station; Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson; and Kacey Musgraves and Ruston Kelly. The late Chris Cornell also delivers one of his best vocal performances of “You Never Knew My Mind.”
