New Johnny Cash Tribute Album Set For Release In August

Legacy Recordings/Sony Music Entertainment will release We Walk The The Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash in a deluxe CD/DVD set and Blu-ray disc on Tuesday, August 7.

We Walk The Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash was filmed and recorded on Friday, April 20, 2012 at The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas when an all-star roster of legendary musicians paid tribute to Johnny Cash--his music, his roots, his influence, his heritage--in an unforgettable concert experience.

With Grammy-winning producer Don Was serving as musical director, We Walk The Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash showcased a wide spectrum of sound including Outlaw country pioneers (Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson), contemporary icons (Ronnie Dunn, Evanescence's Amy Lee) and Grammy Award winners (Pat Monahan of Train and The Carolina Chocolate Drops).

Featuring an all-star band led by Was with Buddy Miller, Kenny Aronoff, Ian McLagen  and Greg Leisz, We Walk The Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash includes such remarkable pairings such as Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow performing "If I Were A Carpenter," one of several duets recorded by Cash and his wife, June Carter Cash; Train's Pat Monahan and Shelby Lynne trading verses on "It Ain't Me Babe"; Kris Kristofferson joining Jamey Johnson for "Sunday Morning Comin' Down," both returning with Willie Nelson and Shooter Jennings for "The Highwayman."

Solo highlights include "Folsom Prison Blues" by Brandi Carlile, Lucinda Williams' stunning reinterpretation of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt" (performed by Johnny Cash on American IV: The Man Comes Around, the last album released during the artist's lifetime); and "Long Black Veil" by the acclaimed American singer-songwriter Iron & Wine.
