Song of the Day: 'The Walking Wounded' by Rosanne Cash

Wow! Haven't seen a music video this moving in ages -- a beautiful black-and-white film powered by a haunting new track by Rosanne Cash that's included on "Johnny Cash: Forever Words," a just-released album featuring 16 songs created from her father's unearthed poetry, lyrics and letters set to music by an array of contemporary artists. (In addition to Rosanne, there's Chris Cornell, Jewel, T Bone Burnett, Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, stepdaughter Carlene Carter, John Mellencamp and Elvis Costello.)
For nearly 60 years, the words of Johnny Cash have reached across cultural, spiritual and ideological borders. He was not only a singer of great songs, but a teller of universal truths about justice, faith, love, and independence. It was in this spirit that "Johnny Cash: Forever Words," was created. Recorded primarily at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tenn., and co-produced by John Carter Cash and Steve Berkowitz, "Johnny Cash: Forever Words" is also the musical companion to the best-selling "Forever Words: The Unknown Poems," a volume of Cash's unpublished writing edited by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon.
