Willie Nelson on album featuring writings of Johnny Cash, “Forever Words”
by:  Randy Lewis

“He’s had people write melodies, and what I’ve heard so far is amazing,” Krauss told The Times last year.

“We did a track and had Robert Lee Castelman write the melody for it. It’s just beautiful,” she said of the song “The Captain’s Daughter,” her first new studio recording in six years with her longtime band Union Station.

The newly created songs have been recorded primarily at the Cash Family Cabin in Hendersonville, Tenn., and serve as a musical companion to a volume of Cash’s writings published in 2016, “Forever Words: The Unknown Poems.”

“Determining the artist for each song was truly a matter of the heart,” Carter Cash said in a statement. “I picked the artists who are most connected with my father, who had a personal story that was connected with dad. It became an exciting endeavor to go through these works, to put them together and present them to different people who could finish them in a way that I believed that dad would have wanted.”

The album will be released on CD, as a two-LP vinyl double album and on digital formats.
