New Music Video From Brad Paisley (and Johnny Cash) - "Gold All Over The Ground"

Brad Paisley has shared a special music video of a track off of his just-released album, Love & War — and this one a song fifty years in the works. Adapted from a poem written by Johnny Cash in 1967 to June Carter Cash, “Gold All Over the Ground” finds one country star paying tribute to another with a poignant love song.

Johnny and June's son, John Carter Cash, had collected these previously unpublished pieces for a new poetry book that came out this year and brought one to Paisley who put it to music. The song opens with audio snippets of Cash's voice introducing wife June Carter and, at the end of the track, proclaiming that she helped save his life. The poem, anchored by the line, "If you're ever down, I'd give you rows of roses and gold all over the ground," was first published in Cash's posthumous 2016 collection Forever Words.
