VA: - A Girl Named Johnny Cash - And Other Tribute Songs (CD)

Bear Family 2010

Country music's greatest artists pay tribute to each other!A must-have for Johnny Cash fans!Includes the cult tribute records by African American country artist Stoney Edwards! Unavailable until now!Plus Merle Haggard, Mac Wiseman, and more!'Tribute' records are almost forgotten today, but for several decades there were hundreds of tribute records, sung by country stars about other country stars. This 'Tributes' compilation collects eighteen of the best, from Gordon Terry's delightfully wacky tribute to his boss Johnny Cash, The Ballad Of J.C., to Charlie Rich's tribute to Jim Reeves, Gentleman Jim. Also included are no less than eight of Stoney Edwards' touching tributes to his heroes, including The Night The Ernest Tubb Show Came To Town, Hag, BobWills, and many others. Superstar Merle Haggard is well represented with Leonard (a biographical song about his friend Leonard Sipes aka 'Tommy Collins') and Goodbye Lefty, an ode to Hag's hero, Lefty Frizzell. All in all, this disc is a fascinating collection of an interesting and forgotten sub-genre of country music.
