June Carter Cash - Church in the Wildwood

CHURCH IN THE WILDWOOD pays tribute not only to June's legacy on country music but also to the unshakable spirit and faith with which she lived her life. Deemed the spiritual matriarch of country music, she has touched the lives of many with her soulful voice and repertoire of Carter Family music that reaches back to the early 20th century. June's rendition of the Carter Family classic "Keep on The Sunnyside" brought her a GRAMMY award for BEST FEMALE COUNTRY PERFORMANCE at the 2003 ceremony and of course "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" remains the most famous of all country gospel songs. To hear such classics alongside moving hymns such as "Diamonds in the Rough" is to enjoy the holy, country hospitality of a simple countrywoman of a pure and spiritual heart. CHURCH IN THE WILDWOOD also serves as the companion piece to Johnny Cash's Gospel record, My Mother's Hymn Book released as part of the Unearthed box set shortly after his passing in 2003. CHURCH IN THE WILDWOOD represents the full circle of June's career and reminds us why she has earned her place among country music royalty both in music and in life.
