June Carter Tribute Planned

Billboard reports that Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn, Emmylou Harris and Brad Paisley are among the stars appearing on the June Carter Cash tribute album “Anchored in Love,” due June 19 via Dualtone. The release will coincide with a biography of the same name penned by Cash’s son John.

With the exception of Ralph Stanley, who recorded “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” at the southwest Virginia home of the Carter Family, “Anchored in Love” was recorded throughout 2006 on the Cash family property in Hendersonville, Tenn.

On it, Costello tackles the iconic “Ring of Fire,” while Nelson and Crow team up for a duet on “If I Were a Carpenter.” Carter Cash’s stepdaughter Rosanne performs the spiritual “Wings of Angels” and Lynn offers a version of “Wildwood Flower.”

Carter Cash died May 15, 2003, after complications from heart surgery.
