The great Loretta Lynn died on October 4th at the age of 90, leaving behind one of the most impressive catalogs in country music history. But as Saving Country Music previously reported, we’re probably not done hearing from Loretta Lynn just yet, including a rendition of an iconic recording.
John Carter Cash
It was revealed previously that between 2007 and 2014, Loretta Lynn had been making regular visits to the Cash Cabin Studios in Hendersonville, TN originally built by Johnny Cash, and recording tracks with her daughter Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash acting as producers.
There are multiple books and films on the life of Johnny Cash, but “The Redemption of an American Icon” focuses specifically on Cash’s life in the early 70s after he experienced a career resurgence due to the success of his live prison albums, but his demons and addictions came rushing to the forefront.
It’s not uncommon for news to come down the pike about the release of some archival audio footage by a bygone musical icon. But the case if this upcoming release of a previously-unheard 1968 Johnny Cash concert is anything but ordinary; it’s certainly something to get excited about.
The House of Cash is one of the most critical and accomplished family lineages in the history of country music. Though Johnny Cash is where most of the attention dwells, now three generations of performers have emerged, while Cash’s siblings have also contributed to country music.

Loretta Lynn will be joined by numerous guests, and celebrate the legacy of women in country music with her latest album called Still Woman Enough, set for release on March 19th via Sony’s Legacy Records imprint. Co-produced by Loretta’s daughter Patsy Lynn Russell and John Carter Cash at the Cash Cabin Studios.
The Man in Black is gone, but his legacy won’t be forgotten. Johnny Cash’s presence not just as a country music star, but as an American icon has made him a cultural figure that transcends genre and entertainment, and we’ve seen that in the way he’s been embraced in all walks of life. A new website and restaurant have been launched.
50 years ago today, New Year’s Eve 1968, Johnny Cash took time from whatever revelry the night might’ve had in store for him to write a letter to himself. It was Cash’s capstone to what he considered the most important year of his career and personal life, and many Cash fans and historians would probably concur.
The uncertainty surrounding Loretta Lynn’s latest album is over, and so is the long wait for the country music legend’s return to the spotlight. “Wouldn’t It Be Great” was originally scheduled to be released on August 18th, 2017, but was delayed after Loretta Lynn suffered a mild stroke.
As first reported by Saving Country Music, the heavy metal band DevilDriver has been working on an Outlaw country tribute record that will include special guests and a heavy metal influence. Now we have the details on the project called ‘Outlaws ‘Til The End.’ From the country world, Hank Williams III and John Carter Cash will participate.
What started out to be the idea for a heavy metal album of Outlaw country covers by DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara has apparently turned into a monster project that may include dozens of songs and as many as 25 guest appearances. Though the songs will be country, the approach to most of the songs will be metal.
When Brad Paisley included a song called “Gold All Over The Ground” on his recent album Love and War, we thought it was just a one-off occasion where one of today’s country artists took a poem from Johnny Cash and turned it into a song. The poem “Gold All Over The Ground” was first composed […]

The idea was to take well-known established artists, worthy undiscovered musicians and songwriters, and stick them all in Johnny Cash’s legendary cabin with an open bar, and set the camera’s rolling.

Country music isn’t just a genre of music, it is a musical religion, a way of life, a cultural lineage passed down from generation to generation and preserved through the blood and bond of its performers and fans. That’s why it seems country music performers so very often tend to turn out to be the parents of country music performers themselves.

If country music is ever going to be saved, it is going to take people with true passion for the music tugging at the yoke, willing to do whatever it takes on and off the stage in the name of preserving the music and paying it forward. One such passionate young lady doing her part is songwriter and performer Angela Dodson, a performer, who also is the Event Center Manager at the Johnny Cash Museum.

To hear the warm, familiar voice of a legendary country music great again here so many years after they have unfortunately passed on in a new, unreleased and unheard song is a gift from the country music heavens hard to put a true measure on. But to hear two of those legendary voices come back to life, and together no less, is downright country music divinity.
