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.

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.

"  VIDEO: 'Turn, Turn, Turn' As Claudia Luther noted in the Times' obituary , Seeger influenced generations: "At some point, Pete Seeger decided he'd be a walking, singing reminder of all of America's history," Bruce Springsteen said at the all-star Madison Square Garden concert marking Seeger's 90th birthday in 2009.

The last time June Carter Cash appeared in Los Angeles, she performed a single, unrecorded song during a 1996 concert by her husband, Johnny Cash, at the House of Blues. That song, "I Used to Be Somebody," which she wrote, is a poignant look back at her life, her career and the relationships and friendships she's enjoyed with various entertainment icons, most of whom have long since died. As it turns out, that performance led to the 69-year-old singer's signing with an L.A.

Maces Springs, Va. -- John R. Cash was born Feb. 26, 1932, which means a recent Saturday was somewhere around his 25,800th day on Earth. That he spent most of that day in a modest, two-story wood-frame house in a quiet Virginia valley says a lot about the country music pillar and the historic locale. Cash and his wife, June Carter Cash, own glamorous estates in Nashville and Jamaica, but they find special comfort in the beauty and tradition of this house and this unspoiled valley, both of them the home to country music's hugely influential Carter Family.

We couldn't mow the yard any more and instead of getting $1 a week for allowance, I got $10. It was a little overwhelming," she said.
