Johnny Cash Lends a Hand

Rodney Crowell gets some vocal help from his former father-in-law on his upcoming album, The Houston Kid. Johnny Cash (father of Crowell’s ex-wife Rosanne Cash) sings on “I Walk the Line (Revisited),” a tune that recalls Crowell’s early love of music. Crowell’s new album, his first in four years, is due Jan. 23 on Sugar Hill Records. Cash has just released American III: Solitary Man, his third album with rap and rock producer Rick Rubin.
