One-hour music intensive special celebrates the release of American V: A Hundred Highways, the all-new Johnny Cash album from his last studio recordings before his death in September 2003. The songs from these final sessions are presented along with exclusive comments by both producer Rick Rubin and the Man in Black, himself. This program is a great way to premiere these new songs before the CD is in stores from Lost Highway Records on July 4, 2006. American V: A Hundred Highways includes the last song Cash wrote ("Like the 309"), in a stirring mix of covers and originals that Rick Rubin describes as "Johnny's final statement. They are the truest reflection of the music that was central to his life at the time. This is the music that Johnny wanted us to hear." As an added bonus, Johnny Cash: The Last Highway also features Cash performing some of his best known tunes live from the 1994 Montreaux Jazz Festival.

One-hour radio documentary explores Johnny Cash's love for Gospel music, his roots in the church, and the stories behind his greatest Gospel recordings and performances.
When a young man named Johnny Cash tried to get his first record deal, he told Sam Philips of Sun Records that he was a Gospel Singer. Philips said, ?No Thanks,? but that didn?t stop Cash from recording and playing gospel songs. In time, Cash took his faith a lot further. He became a biblical scholar, a religious writer and even an ordained minister. In this one-hour radio special, we?re going to hear about the spiritual world of Johnny Cash from family and friends. Interview subjects include his son, John Carter Cash, musicians Marty Stuart and Larry Gatlin and biographers Patrick Carr and Dave Urbanski. Johnny Cash: Amazing Grace also contains more than a dozen of Cash?s best known gospel songs, including both traditional and original compositions. ?Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,? ?Here Was a Man,? How Great Thou Art? and many more works are featured alongside stories of how Cash was inspired to record these timeless spirituals. Length: 59:00 with two breaks for local spots.
