Kacey Musgraves will be featured on the new Johnny Cash project, Forever Words, a collection of unknown poetry and unfinished lyrics from the Man in Black. The album was produced by John Carter Cash, the only son of the country icon and June Carter Cash.
Kacey and her husband, Ruston Kelly, put music to the song, “To June This Morning,” a letter Johnny wrote to his wife. Other artists on the project include close friends and fellow Outlaws, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson, as well as Brad Paisley, the late Chris Cornell, daughter Rosanne Cash and June’s daughter Carlene Carter, John Mellencamp, Jewel and Elvis Costello, among others.
Beyond grateful and excited to be included in this ‘Johnny Cash: Forever Words’ project. Unknown poetry of Johnny’s set to music by my husband and I, and a very incredible gathering of iconic artists 🖤 There’s so much love and magic in our recording. April 6 pic.twitter.com/Fdgb3NN7j9
