On February 26, American VI: Ain’t No Grave – the sixth and final installment of Johnny Cash‘s critically-acclaimed American Recordings album series – will be officially released. This final album was produced by Rick Rubin, along with the first five installments of the series. Cash and Rubin recorded many songs between the completion of American IV: The Man Comes Around in 2002 right up until September 12, 2003, the day Cash passed. Songs recorded during this time frame were released in 2006 as American V: A Hundred Highways, and now this final grouping of songs, American VI: Ain’t No Grave, ends the series that began in 1994 with American Recordings.
The date of this final album release would have marked Cash’s 78th birthday.
