JOHNNY CASH – Album ‘AMERICA V: A HUNDRED HIGHWAYS’ Came Out 15 Years Ago

Musings for the laziest day of the week

15 July 2021

The late great JOHNNY CASH (26 February 1932 – 12 September 2003)
recorded between 1994 and 2002 five albums with famous producer
Rick Rubin. The LPs were released each as part of his American Series
project.

The final one American V: A Hundred Highways came out posthumously
15 years ago – July 2006 – almost 3 years after he passed away. It topped
the US Albums Chart. Cash’s first number one in 37 years.

Pitchfork wrote: “Johnny Cash’s final album attempts to balance man and myth,
with songs that allude to his grief, his deep faith, and his impending death.”

It’s a really special record, mostly ballads/hymns/reveries/reflections (old and
new). His near-broken voice is so gripping and so emotive. It makes you wonder
what went on in his head. He already was sick during the recordings and he knew
that his journey on earth would soon come to an end.

He’s one of the few artists that bring tears to my eyes.
May his soul rest in peace.

Two tracks were issued as singles…

– GOD’S GONNA CUT YOU DOWN –

– HELP ME –
