Wildwood Flower was designed as a follow-up to Press On, June Carter's GRAMMY®-Award winning 1999 CD that has recently been reissued. June recorded her new collection during an extraordinary burst of creativity earlier this year. The record contains her versions of nine classic songs by her kinfolk, Country Music Hall of Fame members the Carter Family, as well as her own songs, plus collaborations with her legendary husband Johnny Cash. As she was preparing for the release of Wildwood Flower, June Carter Cash died unexpectedly on May 15, 2003 after suffering complications from heart surgery.

" This record was very important to her," says her son John Carter Cash, who produced both Press On and Wildwood Flower. "She had a great heritage that she wanted to carry on, and she wanted to make an artistic, historical and musical statement. I think the inspiration was bound to rise in her again. So when she got offered this record deal, this album just naturally fell into place."

Muze PNote Released shortly after June Carter Cash's death in 2003, WILDWOOD FLOWER features the country music legend's most personal, intimate music. Recorded with relatives ranging from her cousins Janet and Joe Carter (the children of A.P. and Sara Carter) to granddaughter Tiffany Anastasia Lowe (the daughter of Carlene Carter and Nick Lowe) to, of course, her husband Johnny Cash, these 13 songs have the casual, almost spontaneous quality of a family sing-along. This feeling is heightened by both the snatches of conversation between the tracks and the song selection itself, taken almost entirely from the A.P. Carter songbook. That feeling of direct lineage colors the entire record; not only are these among the finest and most archetypal country songs ever written, they're also, in a very real way, family heirlooms, no less so than a treasured photograph or piece of jewelry. As a result, listening to WILDWOOD FLOWER is akin to being present at a particularly intimate, heartwarming family gathering.

Producer: John Carter Cash

Engineer: Chuck Turner

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (9/18/03, p.70)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...Fittingly, she says goodbye with a lovely bouquet of songs....The album's pristine, spare sound emphasizes Norman Blake's masterful picking, daughter-in-law Laura Cash's haunting fiddle and June's signature autoharp strum..."

Entertainment Weekly (9/12/03, p.152)
- "...There's palpable joy in the way she and her supporting cast...breath life into these age-old country-folk songs, as if they're tugging at rapture and saness at the same time....As a posthumous release, it's almost too poignant to bear." - Rating A-

Uncut (1/04, p.108)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "WILDWOOD FLOWER is raw and achingly human."

Dirty Linen (12/03, p.52)
- "...WILDWOOD FLOWER serves as a poignant and beautiful coda to her fascinating musical life..."

Mojo (Publisher)
(12/03, p.108)
- 5 stars out of 5 - "Humble, home-spun, deeply warm and honest, this record comes from a place where the idea of music as business simply doesn't exist."
