Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley and Emmylou Harris are just a few of the big names turning out for the June Carter Cash tribute album, Anchored in Love, due June 19 from Dualtone Records.
According to Billboard, the release will coincide with a biography of the same name penned by Cash’s son John. With the exception of Ralph Stanley’s version of “Will the Circle Be Unbroken,” Anchored in Love was recorded in its entirety on the Cash family property in Hendersonville, Tenn.
