There's yet another posthumous Johnny Cash album on the way, titled "American VI: Ain't No Grave" and due out Feb. 26 (which would've been the great man's 78th birthday). Along with covers of songs by Kris Kristofferon and Sheryl Crow, the album features some bonafide Tar Heel content -- Concord's own Avett Brothers, Scott and Seth, in cameo roles on the title track. They recorded their contribution last year during sessions for "I and Love and You," which was produced by Johnny Cash producer Rick Rubin.
Of course, we still don't have a Triangle date on the Avetts tour. But their "Austin City Limits" episode airs on Jan. 23.
