Happy Birthday, June!
Okie dokie peoples. So we have a new song of the day up "Good Old Fashioned Hoe Down" courtesy of The Carter Sisters, Mother Maybelle and Chet Atkins with his Famous Guitar. Have a good listen and enjoy the weekend. I recently got some new articles so when I have time to catch my breath hopefully I can put them up; until then toot-a-loo!
Well, aside from the usual weekly updates not too much new stuff has been added and we can blame that on John Carter's book. I highly recommend it for any fan of June Carter who has not read it yet. I won't go into too much detail so that you can all figure out your opinions for yourself but I enjoyed it. And I am just happy that June Carter Cash finally has her own biography out instead of just being a foot note in a nother Johnny Cash biography, lol.
There have been a gew new autographed pictures added and some new links and reviews, too, so go check it out until we get time to put up more treasures for the eyes and ears.
Tomorrow is Memorial Day,so for all Americans take a moment to say thank you to the men and women who have died for our country. Thank you to all our soldiers here and gone and we hope that you come home soon!
There are some new pictures up in the Early June and Middle Years pages so go take a look. And Claudia has made her very own June Carter website and it is very fantastic so go check it out.

Sorry for the lack of regular updating. It seems life has been rearing it's head lately. I'll try to get more new things up soon when I can find some spare minutes. Until then God bless and make sure to cherish those you love, you never know when you'll lose them.
We put up another video in the Grand Ole Opry 3 Section and Katie has added more insightful comments in the Reviews Section. We have also added another article.
We are also going to be coming up with a poll to find out what we should call this website; so if you have a suggestion leave a comment and we'll put it in the Poll.
The new Song of the Week is up, it is Chet Atkins and June Carter singing their rendition of Reuben, Reuben with a few risque jokes thrown in for good measure. We have also added an Artwork section and the Singers and Sweethearts article has been finished so go take a look.
A new Article has been added, it's actually a sort of Obituary/memorial from just after June's passing. So far all the articles' pictures have been added. If you have trouble viewing the pictures let us know so we can adjust it. There have also been Pictures added to a new Later Years 2 section.
I'm attempting to put up Singers and Sweethearts and also the Johnny Cash Comic Book from the early 70s, so keep your eye out for those!
The newest Video of the Week is up! And we are currently in the process of adding the pictures to all the previously posted articles, so go take a second look at the Articles page.
Also Katie has posted her hilarious Reviews of some of June's albums and books, so go see if you agree with her or not and post a comment telling us what you think of June's albums and books.
More videos have been added to the Grand Ole Opry 2 and 3 section. And Keep On the Sunny Side: Her Life In Music has been added to the Music section.
In other breaking news my scanner has finally been fixed so I put up copies of the Hoedown magazine with June Carter and Carl Smith, I hope to put more articles and pictures up soon. So keep your eye out for them.
There is a new Song of the Week up. It is "Anchored In Love" from June's Wildwood Flower album, Janette Carter sings lead and June and Joe Carter sing harmony.

Katie has added a few new Quotes, they're at the waaaaay bottom of the page.
A lot more videos have been added to the Grand Ole Opry section, and to avoid overloading we've added a second page for it.

And here's a press release that Barry and Linda Gibb released regarding the Hendersonville Home:
STATEMENT FROM BARRY AND LINDA GIBB AND FAMILY
Nashville, TN (April 16, 2007) – Regarding the Nashville home formerly owned by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash and purchased by Barry and Linda Gibb in 2006, which burned down on April 10, 2007, the Gibb family has released the following statement:
“Linda and I have decided to build our own home on the higher ground surrounding the Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash home and the original foundations shall be kept in tact and preserved for the people of Hendersonville and the people of Nashville.
This land is sacred land to all of us here and must be protected forever. To the Cash Carter families we owe the highest respect and the deepest regret that our dream could not be realized. Now there is a new dream for us and a new beginning.”
By popular request Appalachian Pride is the new Song of the Week!
More videos have been added to the Grand Ole Opry section and more should be coming soon.
And in case anyone was wondering the Poems, Jokes and Juneisms; Quick Facts and Quotes sections have all been moved to the This 'n' That section. It's a stupid name, I know that, but I couldn't think of anything else. If anyone has a better name for it let me know and I'll change it.
In case anyone hasn't heard June's former house on the lake has burned down. It's very, very sad; but thankfully no one was hurt except for minor smoke inhalation. For more information go here.
Well, another Video section has been added. Since there are so many videos of June on the Grand Ole Opry I figured it deserved it's own section instead of putting them all in Comedy and overloading it. So here's the link.
Since I don't update on weekend everyone have a HAPPY EASTER! And as my grandma likes to say take a moment to remember that "it wasn't the Easter bunny who died for your sins".

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY JUNE AND JOHNNY!
Today June Carter and Johnny Cash would have celebrated
their 39th anniversary.
Some Videos have been added to the Comedy and Solo sections and a new Article has also been added, the article isn't really about her, but the picture is of her.
YouTube has been spazing out lately so if a video isn't playing then please let us know.
There's a new video of the week up on the Home Page, and everyone has been adding some really terrific Quotes, too.
And Summer found this really terrific article about John Carter's book and tribute album about his mom:
"Anchored In Love: A Tribute to June Carter Cash" (Dualtone) was conceived and produced by Cash, the only child of Johnny and June, and features songs written by or associated with the beloved singer, and performed by singers including Elvis Costello, Billy Bob Thornton, Sheryl Crow and Willie Nelson. The disc was recorded throughout 2006, primarily at the fabled Cash Cabin Studio on the Cash property in Hendersonville, Tenn.
The CD will coincide with the publication of Cash's book, "Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash" (Thomas Nelson). The only biography of June Carter Cash available, the book describes John Carter's vivid recollections of life with his mother as it chronicles her life from childhood in Appalachia, the early days touring with the Carter Family band, her marriages before Johnny Cash, her early fame, her romance with Johnny Cash and her many ups and downs that followed.
Says John Carter Cash, "I hope through these pages people may come to know my mother in some of the ways I have known her, that though they may read of her pain, they will see her strength and beauty most of all."
About "Anchored In Love: A Tribute to June Carter Cash," John Carter said, "Almost all of the people who participated in the album were family or friends who knew her personally. Everyone who appears on the record, whether they knew her or not, respected her and loved her dearly. Emmylou Harris was a close friend for years and years. Mom was a close friend with Billy Bob Thornton, Kris Kristofferson, Sheryl Crow, Ronnie Dunn and Willie Nelson. It's just a gathering of loved ones, really, to pay homage to her music. She wrote some of the songs, like 'Ring of Fire,' and the very personal 'Song to John,' which Emmylou sings; most of the rest are songs that she perpetuated or made famous like 'Wildwood Flower' (sung by Loretta Lynn) and 'Will the Circle Be Unbroken.'"
Costello sings "Ring of Fire." "I always had Costello in mind to sing 'Ring of Fire,'" said Cash. "He was very close with both of my parents, and it was his suggestion that we use autoharp in order to focus more on my mother's version of the song rather than my father's version."
Other performances range from a dynamic duet between between Nelson and Crow on the lead-off track "If I Were A Carpenter" to Carlene Carter and Ronnie Dunn's foot-stomping duet on "Jackson" to Thornton and the Peasall Sisters' austere interpretation of "Road to Kaintuck," and Roseanne Cash's take on the spiritual "Wings of Angels."
Ralph Stanley recorded "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" in the old Carter family home in southwest Virginia, the lifelong home of June's mother, Maybelle Carter. Cash remembers, "It was an enlightening and unforgettable experience to see such an icon of regal standing paying respects to one of his contemporaries."
Cash found the experience of working with Lynn similarly gratifying, describing it as "a beautiful experience. She told stories about my mother from the early days in the 1960s and how they were on the road together. But the most overwhelming thing to me about being around Loretta is how much like my mother she is - her temperance, her speech, how caring she is as a human being. So it was very touching to be in the studio with her; it was almost like being in the studio with my mom."
"Some of the musicians who played on the tracks - Randy Scruggs, Norman Blake, Dave Roe, Marty Stuart, Dennis Crouch, my wife Laura - knew my mother very well. But I have to step back and say that a lot of it is just creative magic. That is just what happens when you put great artists and great songs together. It comes out in respect to her, and that common thread is clear."
Other songs on the disc are: "Far Side Banks of Jordan" - Patty Loveless and Kris Kristofferson; "Keep On the Sunny Side" - Brad Paisley; "Big Yellow Peaches" - Grey De Lisle and "Kneeling Drunkard Plea" - Billy Joe Shaver.
