Johnny Cash is at Number One

His last album takes the top spot

Johnny Cash’s final album of original material ’American V: A Hundred Highways’ has topped the Billboard album chart in the US.

The album contains the final song Cash recorded. ’Like The 309’ was completed before his death in September 2003.

As previously reported by NME.COM, producer Rick Rubin discussed Cash’s state of mind during the sessions.

Rubin said: “He believed music was the only thing he had left to live for. It’s a record to listen to and it’s really sad, and it’s beautiful.”
