Cash Recording at Home Studio

Johnny Cash has plans to do some recording later this week at his home in Hendersonville, Tenn. Producer and American Recordings chief Rick Rubin will come in to oversee the sessions, which begin Thursday and run through Sunday (April 27-30). Cash has booked Marty Stuart, Norman Blake and Randy Scruggs for the sessions, to be held at the cabin on the Cash property where Cash and his wife, June Carter Cash, both have recorded Grammy-winning albums. Cash did a round of recording last fall that included Stephen Foster’s “Hard Times” and Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land.” Word is that the Man in Black has done some writing and may be planning to record some original material. No word yet on a projected release.
