I'm so honored + thrilled to be included on the upcoming 'Johnny Cash: Forever Words' project, an album featuring unknown poetry, lyrics, and letters written by Johnny Cash set to music by my husband, @rustonkelly, and I + an incredible gathering of other artists. There are many reasons this was so special for it being our first creative project together. We put music to a sweet poem of Johnny’s called “To June, This Morning” - written in 1970 for a very pregnant June - and we recorded it out at Johnny’s cabin. We then shot the video among the ruins of the iconic lovers’ home. There was definite magic in that room and in the recording. I really can’t wait for y’all to hear it.
