Sheryl Crow Recalls Johnny Cash's Reaction To “Redemption Day”

In a new interview with Taste of Country, Sheryl Crow recalls how she felt after hearing Johnny Cash’s cover of her song “Redemption Day.” “Just hearing his powerful voice, knowing what was behind the man and what a great American and outspoken artist he was, to hear him on that then and definitely to hear him on it now has, I think, made the song more powerful," Crow explains. “I think it some ways it really makes you think about what we do in our lives that our children will mimic. And the idea is that there is hope and we’re all going to be on this train at the end of life.” "Redemption Day" appeared on Crow’s 1996 self-titled album. Seven years later, Cash recorded it for his American VI: Ain't No Grave album, which was released posthumously in 2010. He died just months after cutting it.
