June Carter Cash Wildwood Flower on Colored 180g LP + Download
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl
Wildwood Flower was designed as the follow-up to Press On, June Carter Cash's Grammy award winning 1999 album. Recorded during an extraordinary burst of creativity, the 13-song set contains June's versions of 9 classic songs by her kinfolk, Country Music Hall of Famers the Carter Family, as well as a few originals, plus a pair of collaborations with her legendary husband Johnny Cash.
However, as she was preparing for the release of Wildwood Flower, June passed away unexpectedly on May 15, 2003 after suffering complications from heart surgery. The timeless album went on to garner two well deserved posthumous Grammy awards in 2004 for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her rendition of the Carter Family classic "Keep On The Sunny Side" and Best Traditional Folk Album.
"This record was very important to her," says her son John Carter Cash, who produced both Press On and Wildwood Flower. "She had a great heritage that she wanted to carry on, and she wanted to make an artistic, historical and musical statement. I think the inspiration was bound to rise in her again. So when she got offered this record deal, this album just naturally fell into place."
