Here is the review form

Life near the field is harmonious. Quail, deer, mice, crow, and rabbit all know their roles and have coexisted for generations. But when the crow king dies, a battle for the throne ensues, throwing life in the field into chaos. As the small creatures flee and the crows descend into civil war, a young quail named Ysil and his friends are entrusted with a dangerous mission that could save them all. You see, predators and dark tidings lurk in the forest, and they’re coming… for the field, for everyone Ysil knows.
Lupus Rex is unlike anything I’ve read in quite some time, almost like a children’s book specifically redesigned and rebranded to open the eyes of adults. It’s a new fable, encompassing the beliefs of numerous animal societies, and pondering the hard questions of peace, war, legacy, and tradition. At times thoughtful, weird, musical, mystical, and heartbreaking, Lupus Rex embraces the good and bad inherent in a predator/prey society, mining it for unexpected depth and resonance. Death means life, and that practicality of thought is almost off-putting in how commonplace the book makes it.
Welcome to the recommended school reading list,
Lupus Rex. You’ll be opening a lot of young minds.

Jewel Will Play June Carter Cash in TV Movie


Jewel has signed on to play June Carter Cash in Lifetime’s original movie,The June Carter Cash Story (working title). The movie will be based on John Carter Cash’s narrative of his mother’s life, Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash and will tell June’s story, from her early beginnings up through her marriage to Johnny Cash.
The June Carter Cash Story was written by Richard Friedenberg and will be directed by Allison Anders. Steven Michaels, Jonathan Koch and John Carter Cash will executive produce. Filming will begin early this summer in Atlanta and the movie is slated to premiere later this year.
“Many people know about the legendary love story of Johnny and June,” Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President, Programming, of Lifetime Networks, said. “But June Carter Cash has her own epic journey filled with triumphs, tragedies, loves and losses.  This movie will explore all aspects of the woman behind the icon, and we’re thrilled Jewel will be playing the title role.”
The movie will begin with June Carter’s early childhood, growing up in the rural mountains of Virginia. It will recount her rise to fame — along with her popular family of singers — as a child, before going out on her own to perform alongside
Elvis Presley and a group of performers who would forever influence American culture.

Johnny Cash family members in Jonesboro to announce concert

Screen shot 2011-05-02 at 3.28.36 PM

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A daughter, son and brother of the late Johnny Cash were in Jonesboro to announce an upcoming benefit concert for the city of Dyess.
On August 4th the first Johnny Cash Music Festival will be held at the ASU Convocation Center with such artists as the Cash's, Gary Morris, Rodney Crowell, George Jones and Kris Kristofferson.
Rosanne Cash describes the relationship between her father and Kristofferson, " He was almost as close a brother to my dad as my uncle Tommy was and he said yes immediately."
Johnny Cash grew up and graduated High School in Dyess. His family came there from Kingsland, Arkansas.  As part of the WPA Project at the Dyess Colony his dad was entitled to "40 Acres and a mule." Brother Tommy Cash said he was excited about seeing the house again after 40 years. ASU just recently acquired the house and it too will be restored with other colony buildings.
Son John Carter Cash said the restoration is more than just old buildings. "To me it's not about my father the entertainer, or the musician it's about a very important glimpse into the history of America."

John Carter Cash "Blood of The Wolfman" Amped Up Mag Review

On Friday January 7th,  Nashville Tennessee, received an open invitation to “Catch the Train” at The Rutledge for a rare and unique performance of unbounded creativity with John Carter Cash. The man of no creative limits has a true passion for being in the studio, Cash Cabin Studios in-particular, located in Hendersonville, TN on the Cash/Carter Family property, built by his father in 1978. Cash Cabin has been the recording Studio of choice by a large roster of over one hundred new and accomplished artists such as John Prine, Earl Scruggs, Elvis Costello and upcoming Nashville southern rock group Old Union.
Living up to his statement “my music is creative expressions with no expectations”, John Carter released his new album titled The Family Secret September 21st 2010. This album packages a perfect uniform silhouette of unbound, creative musical expression. When first discovering this new album myself, I have to say, based on the musical history of the Carter & Cash families, I had already made a preconceived perception of how John Carter’s music was going to sound.

Rolling Stone Reviews John Carter Cash “The Family Secret”

If John Cash could turn Nine Inch Nail's "Hurt" into a folk-guitar prayer, then why shouldn't his son remake Blue Oyster Cult's heavy-rocking "Godzilla" as a Tori Amos-style piano ballad? On the follow-up to the tradition-minded album he made with the Carter Family III, 40-year-old John Carter Cash almost totally abandons his blood roots here, with evident glee.  Throughout The Family Secret, there are echoes of Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, even Metallica (check out the ax gymnastics on "Shadows Cross the Seine" and "Uncle Sam is Dead"). If you're looking for serious family secrets, read his half sister Rosanne's new memoir: The title track here is actually a noisy, Cramps-type rocker about a werewolf coming to terms with his bloodthirstiness.

“...this album is truly spectacular..."

Review: John Carter Cash- The Family Secret

Posted by Ad
am Sheets on September 15, 2010 at 12:00pm

I think I misjudged John Carter Cash just a little. Last month, he, his wife, and his cousin released an album as The Carter Family III and in my review I had this to say: "This album is a great traditional country album, although I wish they had recorded a few more originals. It's not groundbreaking by any means and, of course, other family members have done far better in the past. That's not the point. If you want groundbreaking, genre-bending music, check out the new Shooter Jennings album."

I stand by my statement for that particular record, but Mr. Cash, I apologize for selling you far too short. On his upcoming solo album Th
e Family Secret, which comes out the 21st of this month, Cash mixes dark lyrics, elements of traditional country, folk, piano rock, and old-school metal to create a totally unique sound. You hear that last phrase far too often for it to resonate, so allow me to repeat it: this sounds like nothing else out there.

From the beautiful opening cover of Loudon Wainwright's "Swimming Song," which sounds like Lindsey Buckingham and Cat Stevens meet Bruce Hornsby with Pete Seeger on banjo, through to the stripped-down hidden track where Cash covers the Blue Oyster Cult's "Godzilla," to all of the (mostly) original tunes in between, this album is truly spectacular.

But it's the first original that gets to me the most. The melancholy piano-heavy rock of "Cab Casket" oozes with true power and obliquely spiritual Chris Cornell-esque lyrics that speak to the darkness within. On the other hand, I could not concentrate on the lyrics to "Shadows Cross the Seine," because it was so musically overpowering. Think Iron Maiden covering "Aqualung" with Joe Satriani (here played by Kenny Vaughan) shredding on guitar.

John Carter Cash Reveals 'The Family Secret'

John Carter Cash makes no bones about the fact that although he enjoys performing, working in the studio is his true passion.

While many have likely heard the music to come out of Cabin Cash Studio in Hendersonville, Tenn. -- which Johnny Cash built on his property north of Nashville in 1978 and where he, his wife June Carter Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Earl Scruggs, Loretta Lynn, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris and many other members of musical royalty recorded --- watching John perform during a September 11 showcase in Nashville was something of a rare and unusual treat.

"Some folks expect my music to sound like my dad's," John told The Boot prior to his performance during the annual Americana Music Fest. "I never felt like I had to sound like my dad. I wanted my music to be creative expression with no expectations."
