Johnny Cash’s posthumous ‘Out Among the Stars,’ initially recorded in the 1980s, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart this week.
“Out Among the Stars,” a previously unheard Johnny Cash album cut in the 1980s, hit stores this week, and it’s a beauty — as strong as anything he released that decade. Hear a preview of the album, which also features duets with June Carter and Waylon Jennings.
“Out Among the Stars,” the title track of Cash’s forthcoming album of previously unreleased recordings, is a moving song that tells of a man struggling to find work who resorts to holding up a liquor store. Hear it today.
“She Used to Love Me a Lot” is a song from the upcoming Cash album “Out Among the Stars,” which is set for release in March.
‘Out Among the Stars’ is an album Cash recorded in the early 1980s with producer Billy Sherrill that was shelved and never released. The 12-track album includes a duet with Waylon Jennings and two with June Carter Cash.
“He Stopped Loving Her Today” makes the list, of course, but there are many more Jones recordings that are equally devastating. Our list also includes honky tonkers, a twisted gospel song and even a stunning love ballad.
The announcement came during a graveside ceremony Monday (Nov. 18) in Nashville. See photos and watch a video from the event.
