In the Spotlight: Johnny Cash – Out Among the Stars

OutAmongTheStars

by Cat Johnson

Out Among the Stars was recorded by Johnny Cash in the mid-1980s, but it got shelved because he thought the production was “too pop.” It was rediscovered by John Carter Cash in 2012 and, despite the elder Cash’s opinion otherwise, it has some songs on it that definitely deserve to be heard.

Highpoints of the album include a bluegrass duet with June Carter Cash titled “Don’t You Think It’s Come Out Time,” and a duet with Waylon Jennings on a cover of the Hank Snow standard “I’m Moving On” and “She Used to Love Me a Lot,” a song made popular in the 1980s by David Allan Coe.
