More Cash coming

A forgotten collection of music Johnny Cash recorded in the 1980s will be released for the first time on March 25. Titled "Out Among the Stars", the 12-song project will feature two duets with June Carter Cash and one with Waylon Jennings.
The recordings were made in Nashville with producer Billy Sherrill in 1981 and 1984 but have never been issued commercially. Sherrill was head of A&R at CBS Records at the time Cash was still recording for the label.
The sessions were discovered while John Carter Cash was cataloging his father's recordings with the label's archivists. The studio band included a young Marty Stuart on guitar, as well as Nashville A-Team musicians like guitarist Jerry Kennedy, steel guitarist Pete Drake, piano player Hargus "Pig" Robbins and bassist Henry Strzelecki.

Brooks released a six-album boxed set titled Blame It All on My Roots through Walmart stores last month.


Legendary singer Ray Price passes following premature reports of death

Ray Price, one of country music's most beloved voices, died at home Monday afternoon at the age of 87. Price had been hospitalized in Texas recently, and had been fighting a battle against pancreatic cancer since late last year. On Thursday, the singer entered hospice care, leaving a message to fans: "I am at peace. I love Jesus. I'm going to be just fine. Don't worry about me. I'll see you again one day."
On Sunday, social media reported that Price had died, after Price's son, Cliff, wrote on Facebook that he had "heard" his father had passed. Later, he took the post down and said he had been "deceived by some cruel people."
Price's musical career spanned some 65 years, and his recordings stand among the most versatile in the format's history -- ranging from honky-tonk to western swing to a more lush sound in the 1960s that brought him some of the biggest hits of his career. His charted over 100 songs including "Crazy Arms", "Release Me",  "Night Life" and "For The Good Times", and is credited with giving Willie Nelson a start in his Cherokee Cowboys band.
