Johnny Cash and family, then and now

If you love classic country music, don't miss out on the "lost" Johnny Cash album Out Among the Stars. The 1961 photo of Cash by Art Shay at right is part of an exhibit on Shay's work that appeared at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York City.
Cash's gifted daughter Rosanne has a new album out too, The River and the Thread. And Johnny's wife June Carter Cash sings on Out Among the Stars: here's the duet "Baby Ride Easy."
I've always loved Johnny's song "Guess Things Happen That Way." It appears on the Masters of County collection, which also features Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and George Jones.
And here's another song from Out Among the Stars.
 Rosanne Cash performed this live, acoustic version of "The Long Way Home" from The River and The Thread on CBS Sunday Morning.
Here's a fleshed-out performance of "A Feather's Not a Bird." I think her dad would be proud!
