June Carter Cash - Anchored in Love: A Tribute to June Carter Cash (CD)

"A gathering of loved ones to pay homage to her music...a lot of creative magic. This is what happens when you put great artists and great songs together. It comes out of respect to her, and that common thread is clear." - John Carter Cash

Anchored In Love: A Tribute to June Carter Cash was conceived and produced by John Carter Cash, the only child of Johnny and June, and features songs written by or associated with the beloved singer, and performed by an eclectic collection of family and friends that range from Elvis Costello to Billy Bob Thornton, Sheryl Crow to Willie Nelson. John Carter recorded Anchored In Love:A Tribute to June Carter Cash throughout 2006, primarily at the fabled Cash Cabin Studio on the Cash property in Hendersonville, TN.

The release of the CD will coincide with the publication of Cash's book, Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash (Thomas Nelson). The only biography of June Carter Cash available, this touching book describes John Carter's vivid recollections of life with his mother as it chronicles her life from childhood in Appalachia, the early days touring with the Carter Family band, her marriages before Johnny Cash, her early fame, her romance with Johnny Cash, and the many ups and downs that followed. Throughout, the book paints a dramatic, never-before-told portrait of struggle and success, and how the power of true love eventually overcomes all obstacles
