Special edition is pretty darn special!


This book marks the first time Johnny Cash's 60 years of songwriting have been collected anywhere. Cash is one of the most beloved and influential country-music stars of all time, having composed more than 600 songs and perhaps best known for blending country, rock, blues, and gospel in his music, ushering in the countrypolitan and Outlaw country movements.

An essential collectible that sheds new light on Cash's life and work, this oversize and
sumptuously designed book includes rare and never-before-seen visual material
alongside stories and commentary from Cash's son, John Carter Cash, Mark Stielper,
Cash and Carter family historian, and others. Released the year of the twentieth
anniversary of the legendary musician's passing, it will be a landmark moment in music
publishing. A deluxe limited edition will also be available This publication marks the first time the Cash Estate will open its archive to help lovers of his music understand his timeless songs in a new light, and to share the stories behind their creation. Public Historian Dr. Brian Dempsey will oversee the visual contributions.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
