June Carter Cash Wildwood Flower reissue

Remastered for vinyl, 180-gram clear vinyl pressing

Winner of two Grammy Awards — Best Female County Vocal Performance and Best Traditional Folk Album

Wildwood Flower was designed as a follow-up to Press On, June's Grammy Award-winning 1999 CD that has recently been reissued. June recorded her new collection during an extraordinary burst of creativity. 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."

This timeless album garnered two Grammy awards. June gained the recognition she has always deserved, winning the award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance for her rendition of the Carter Family classic, "Keep On The Sunny Side." The album also won the award for Best Traditional Folk Album.
