Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: June Carter Cash (vocals, autoharp); Johnny Cash (vocals); Norman Blake (acoustic & electric guitars, dobro); Marty Stuart (acoustic guitar, mandolin, background vocals); Rodney Crowell (acoustic guitar); Hazel Johnson (mandolin); Jason Carter (fiddle); Benmont Tench (piano); Dave Roe (bass); Rick Lonow (drums); Rosie Carter (background vocals).
  • Includes liner notes by June Carter Cash and Vicky Hamilton.
  • PRESS ON won the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Folk Album.
  • For the first album in years by an artist with as many famous friends as June Carter Cash, there's a distinct absence of pomp and circumstance here. In fact, PRESS ON has a homegrown, spontaneous feel not dissimilar to Johnny Cash's AMERICAN RECORDINGS. Like that album, PRESS ON sounds like it was recorded live in a single sitting (the songs were in fact captured at a makeshift studio in a log cabin at the "Cash Compound"). The record is a raw, all-acoustic affair featuring country/bluegrass legends like Norman Blake, Rodney Crowell and Marty Stuart, as well as various members of the Cash/Carter clan. Many of the songs are June's, and there's a purity to the blend of gospel, bluegrass and country that characterizes the style. When she lends her pipes to a couple of Carter Family classics, it becomes clear that her place in country history has to do with much more than her famous last name(s).
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/27/99, pp.64-65) - 31/2 Stars (out of 5) - "...earthy vocals, chiming autoharp, kooky asides, little flubs and infectious laugh, as well as the players delicious acoustic licks..."

Entertainment Weekly (4/23/99, p.63) - "...Her second solo album--her first was in 1975--is autobiographical, full of dignity and toughness. With ex-sons-in-law Rodney Crowell and Marty Stuart sitting in for some fancy pickin', the circle is unbroken still." - Rating: B

Dirty Linen (10-11/99, p.73) - "...One should listen to this record for its back-porch charm, for her stark voice that sounds great....this is a great record by a rich talent..."
