John Carter Cash has assembled an array of all-star artists and musicians for his latest album, We Must Believe in Magic, a collection of songs he has recorded over the last decade. The two-disc LP will be released on Saturday, April 21st, for Record Store Day.
Bluegrass stars Tony Rice, Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush and Ronnie and Rob McCoury all appear on the project, along with Ana Cristina Cash, John Cowan, the Fisk Jubilee Singers, Dave Roe, the Daeger Brothers, Bob Moore, Etta Britt, Charlie McCoy, Jamie Hartford and Ira Dean. The eye-catching cover-art design by Roberto Parada features the faces of many of the participants in the recordings.
The album consists of Cash’s original tunes, some co-written with Bill Miller, Shawn Camp and Wesley Orbison, as well as covers of songs by Trent Reznor (“Hurt,” the now-classic tune previously released by Cash’s father, Johnny Cash), Charlie Rich (“Feel Like Going Home”) and John Prine (“Paradise”). The title cut, penned by Bob McDill and Allen Reynolds and previously recorded by Crystal Gayle, conveys the album’s central message.
