Ruston Kelly Retreats to Carter Family Home, Emerges With Stark ‘Weeping Willow’

Ruston Kelly puts an atmospheric, modern spin on one of the most mournful ballads of the last century with his just-released version of the Carter Family’s “Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow.” Shortening the title to “Weeping Willow,” Kelly’s rendition of the historic tune replaces the classic mountain-bred instrumentation and three-part harmony of the 1927 original with a more dirge-like pace, adding steel guitar, spare yet dramatic drum beats, and synthesized effects to the singer’s aching vocal performance.

“Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow” was the first of

Film Review: ‘The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash’

Film Review: ‘The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash’
Very much in the manner of an “unplugged” acoustic album that showcases the musicianship of a major artist without distracting flash and filigree, “The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash” is a tightly focused yet impressively multifaceted documentary that attempts nothing less than to delve past familiar myths and illuminate the soul of its fabled subject. Director Thom Zimny, who took a similarly stripped-to-essentials approach to another immortal pop-culture icon in his widely acclaimed “Elvis Presley: The Searcher,” has fashioned, with the full cooperation of the Cash estate, a richly textured portrait infused with sympathetic but unvarnished honesty, one that likely will endure as necessary source material for any future biographer of the Man in Black.

The free-form narrative designed by Zimny and scripter Warren Zanes is anchored in the legendary 1968 concert Johnny Cash gave for inmates at California’s Folsom State Prison, an event that was recorded on a phenomenally popular live album,

Sheryl Crow Depicts Genocide, Environmental Collapse in ‘Redemption Day’ Video
Sheryl Crow presents a disturbing commentary on the state of humankind in her new video for “Redemption Day.” The first release off her upcoming album for Nashville’s Valory Music Co., the stark piano ballad is a duet with Johnny Cash, who recorded his version of the song (Crow’s original appeared on her self-titled 1996 album) shortly before his death in 2003.

While the song is striking for its arrangement and the haunting verses delivered by Crow and Cash, it’s the jarring music video directed by Shaun Silva that leaves a mark.

2019 Grammy eligibility period ends: Will last minute releases by Lady Gaga, Cher and Josh Groban make the cut?

2019 Grammy eligibility period ends: Will last minute releases by Lady Gaga, Cher and Josh Groban make the cut?
The Grammy eligibility period ended on Sunday, September 30. The nominations won’t be announced until December 5, but everything that can be nominated has already been released. And as with movie studios, which often release their most competitive films towards the end of the year to make a strong last impression on Oscar voters, there are a number of last-minute music releases that have snuck into the Grammy race right under the wire. How many of them will make the cut?

The movie musical “A Star is Born” and its soundtrack don’t drop until October 5, so they won’t be eligible until the Grammys that will be held in 2020, but Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper released the lead single from that album, “Shallow,” on September 27, so they could make the cut at this year’s awards with that song, especially if the enthusiasm for the film carries over to the recording academy as well.

Friends Reveal New Details About Johnny Cash and June Carter's Romance: "She Was the Love of His Life" (Exclusive)

Sparks flew when Johnny Cash first gazed upon June Carter backstage at the Grand Ole Opry in 1956, when their love story began. The eyes of the married man in front of her were as black and shiny as agates, she once recalled, and her fascination with them both worried and stirred her. "I only glanced into them," she said of that moment, "because I believed that I would be drawn into his soul and I would never have been able to walk away." Ultimately, she never did. "They met their match when they came together," Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum editor Michael McCall exclusively tells Closer Weekly. It took years before the ballad of Johnny and June as husband and wife could officially begin 50 years ago this month. Their union, which lasted until June's death in 2003, was a roller-coaster ride of extreme highs and lows, fueled by Johnny's battles with depression and drugs.
