The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s upcoming exhibition, Dylan, Cash, and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City Presented by Citi will open Friday, March 27. The exhibit will be accompanied by a 112-page companion book of the same name.
Published by Country Music Foundation Press and distributed by the Hal Leonard Corporation, the book will include a foreword by Rosanne Cash, essay by curator Pete Finney, and essay about the Johnny Cash Show by Johnny Cash expert Michael Streissguth. The cover, a painting of Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, is by artist and musician Jon Langford and was commissioned for the exhibit.
Additionally, a two-disc music compilation will be released this summer via the museum’s CMF Records and Sony Legacy Recordings. The discs will include a previously unreleased version of Dylan’s “If Not For You,” featuring Lloyd Green on pedal steel. Additional recordings on the compilation include Joan Baez‘s “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down,” the Byrds‘ “You Ain’t Going Nowhere,” J.J. Cale‘s “Crazy Mama,” Cash’s “Will The Circle Be Unbroken,” Neil Young‘s “Heart of Gold,” Simon & Garfunkel‘s “The Boxer,” and more.
The project’s liner notes will include work from Tracy Nelson, as well as song notes by Finney and Museum Editor Michael Gray.
