When asked for the story behind this week's posthumous release of Johnny Cash's "Out Among the Stars," a "lost" album recorded in the early '80s with fabled Nashville producer Billy Sherrill, his son, John Carter Cash, quickly reels off a laundry list of reasons. "It seemed to be a cohesive body of work," Cash, 44, said from the family's headquarters in Hendersonville, Tenn. A few years ago he came across the never-released recordings while organizing the bounty of archival materials left behind by his father and his mother, June Carter Cash, after their deaths in 2003.

Marshall Grant, who played standup bass in Johnny Cash's original trio and helped create the legendary singer's distinctive, rhythmic sound in the 1950s, has died. He was 83. Grant, who remained with Cash as a bass player for more than two decades and later managed the Statler Brothers, died Sunday in a hospital in Jonesboro, Ark., according to a spokesman for Memorial Park Funeral Home and Cemetery in Memphis. A resident of Hernando, Miss., Grant was in Jonesboro last week for a Johnny Cash Music Festival to raise funds for the restoration of Cash's boyhood home.

Producer Rick Rubin took up a seat on a sofa on the patio of his expansive Malibu home overlooking the Pacific, emanating both gravity and joy while discussing his extraordinary decade-long relationship with Johnny Cash. It was the first full day of sun after yet another round of thunderstorms had pounded the Southland, a fitting parting of the clouds on the day Rubin spoke about one of the titans of 20th century music in the final years of his life. The final entry in their series of studio albums arrives Tuesday, "American VI: Ain't No Grave," yet despite the nod to mortality in the title, an acknowledgment of the closeness of death that runs through most of the album's 10 songs, Rubin insists that it wasn't created as Cash's swan song.

Jewel may have come from the Lilith Fair generation of female singers and songwriters, but her latest move pays homage to a much earlier era of guitar-playing troubadours. The 39-year-old is taking on the role of June Carter Cash in "Ring of Fire," a Lifetime movie scheduled to premiere Monday. The film, directed by Allison Anders, throws the spotlight squarely on the woman casual music fans may know only as Johnny Cash's wife. It's no easy task since Jewel is following in the footsteps of Reese Witherspoon, who won an Oscar for lead actress in the 2005 biopic "Walk the Line.

Johnny Cash, his four-piece backing band, his wife June Carter Cash, their son John Carter Cash and her sisters Helen and Anita--with that crowd on the stage of the Crazy Horse club on Monday, it's no real surprise that the evening's show was a little ragged at the edges. But it was rock-solid at the core, where Johnny Cash's eccentric hybrid of rock, folk and country mingled with the influential music of his in-laws to form a living link to some of American music's primary currents.
