When the Man In Black passed away, he left behind a lot more than just a legacy. Johnny Cash’s poems and love letters were brought to life by current artists on a compilation called Johnny Cash: Forever Words. 

Kacey Musgraves and her husband, Ruston Kelly teamed up to turn a letter from Johnny to June into a song. The freshly married couple did justice to Johnny’s words.


Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson also teamed up for the tribute. Brad Paisley, John Mellencamp, Elvis Costello, Allison Krauss & The Union Station, and Carlene Carter are among others that can be found on Johnny Cash: Forever Words, which is available now.
