Stars Come Out To Pay Homage To One Of Music's Biggest Icons Johnny Cash

Bookmark and Share

NASHVILLE October 24, 2002 CMT is set to pay tribute to Johnny Cash for his incomparable songwriting abilities. "He's such a poignant and insightful writer," said Marty Stuart, who will host CMT's exclusive star-studded special KINDRED SPIRITS: A TRIBUTE TO JOHNNY CASH. Bruce Springstein, Roseanne Cash, Charlie Robison, Travis Tritt, Keb' Mo' and others will pay homage to the man in black when CMT: Country Music Television premieres the performance special on Monday, Nov. 11 at 8:00 9:00 PM, ET/PT.*

The CMT special will be telecast in conjunction with the release of the Columbia/Lucky Dog Records tribute album "Kindred Spirits: A Tribute To The Songs of Johnny Cash," produced by multiple Grammy award winning producer/performer and former Johnny Cash band member Marty Stuart. "The hardest part was finding a way to honor Johnny Cash that hasn't been done before," said Stuart. "I don't think anyone has ever honored him as a songwriter." For the tribute album, Stuart gathered the top artists in country, folk, rock and blues who have been impacted by Cash including Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, Keb' Mo', Little Richard, Hank Williams Jr., Steve Earle, Travis Tritt, Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Roseanne Cash, Dwight Yoakam, Janette Carter and more to perform their favorite Cash song.

Artists who participated in the album KINDRED SPIRITS: A TRIBUTE TO THE SONGS OF JOHNNY CASH reflect on the musical icon:

"Johnny Cash has the true love of many fans around the world, including this one." - Hank Williams Jr.

"He's an original, timeless . . . he could be a medieval minstrel or he could be someone from the future. You could plop him down in any century and he'd work." -Roseanne Cash

"He's so masterful, he wrote the book on songwriting and delivery ... his music will be remembered as the fabric of the American way of life. He's cool, the definition of Rock & Roll I think." -Sheryl Crow

"He doesn't play music for money, he doesn't play to be on the charts, he plays music because he can't help it." -Steve Earle

"No body of work comes close to what his particular body of work is. He's a soul man and anybody who has that ability to affect a person, to touch them where they live deep down, is going to be remembered by generation after generation." -Emmylou Harris

"He's just one of those guys that doesn't try to be cool and that's what makes him so cool, he's just himself." -Charlie Robison

"He's always been his own man." -Travis Tritt

Cash, who began writing poetry at the age of 12, has won over two-dozen awards recognizing his songwriting talents. Throughout his six-decade career, he has been awarded The National Academy of Songwriters Lifetime Achievement award, Kennedy Center Honors, Grammy Lifetime Achievement award, and has been named a member of the Songwriters Guild Of America Hall of Fame.

Cash received his first songwriting honor in 1956 for "Folsom Prison Blues." In the same year, his third single, "I Walk The Line" claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard Country charts for six consecutive weeks and crossed over into the Pop Top 20. "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line" have both earned the millionaire-award for over a million plays of these classics. "I Walk The Line" has become such a music standard that it has been recorded by over 100 musical performers.
