Assembled by John Carter Cash, the only child of Johnny and June, to coincide with the publication of his book, Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash, Tribute consists mostly of tracks recorded at Cash's recording studio/cabin in Hendersonville, Tenn., by artists you might expect. Yes, Emmylou Harris is here with the June-penned 'Song to John.â?� Willie Nelson duets with Sheryl Crow on Tim Hardin's 'If I Were a Carpenter.â?� Loretta Lynn tackles the Carter Family evergreen 'Wildwood Flower.â?� The legendary Ralph Stanley sounds like he's straight off a field recording for 'Will the Circle Be Unbroken,â?� a tune so traditional that at this point it's hard to believe someone (A.P. Carter) actually wrote it. Billy Bob Thornton narrates while the Peasall Sisters sing 'Road to Kaintuck.â?� The entire compilation is smartly paced, with no egregious missteps: no NashVegas, no goofy novelties, just genuine, no-nonsense performances. A tribute, not an insult.
