Anchored In Love: A Tribute To June Carter Cash
by Various Artists
Released: Jun 2007
This is how you do a tribute! Produced by the late June Carter Cash's son John, Anchored boasts a diverse roundup of folks playing songs that June sang solo, as well as with her Man In Black and the Carter Family. Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow's duet on "If I Were A Carpenter" sets the tone with their spellbinding chemistry. Loretta Lynn's cover of "Wildwood Flower" sounds almost more authentic than the original, and Brad Paisley's refreshing take of "Keep on the Sunny Side" could be the most old-timey thing he's ever recorded. Kudos to Grey De Lisle for using an autoharp.
