Friday Three Names - June Carter Cash


This may well be the last, or one of the last in this series. Not because I've run out of material, more I have run out of steam. It may well be revisited at a later date.

Country royalty today in the form of June Carter Cash -daughter of Maybelle  and Ezra Carter of Carter Family fame, member of Mother Maybelle and the Carter Sisters , ex-wife of Carl Smith, wife of Johnny Cash, step-mother of Rosanne Cash and mother of Carlene Carter. Oh, and a distant cousin of President Jimmy Carter to boot.

Wildwood Flower was her last studio album released in September 2003 four months after her death and only a few days before the death of Johnny. Recorded when she was 72.
An excuse,  as f there  needed one, to feature the most moving musical video of all time

  2. It was with some trepidation that I opened the Wildflower track, but it turns to be quite a moving song, with that quavery vocal.

  3. Concluding on one hell of a high note. Well done.

  4. Great stuff. The way Johnny caresses the closed piano at the end of the video is one of the most poignant things I've seen.
