Listen: Johnny Cash’s lost song “She Used to Love Me a Lot”


As previously reported, Out Among the Stars is the name of an unreleased Johnny Cash album dating back to mid-1980s. As the story goes, Columbia Records hoped to rejuvenate Cash’s career by sending him to work with Nashville producer Billy Sherrill. However, when Cash left Columbia in 1985, the album was shelved and forgotten until Cash’s son John Carter Cash found the tapes in his parents’ home. Two decades later, Out Among the Stars will finally see light on March 25th through Columbia/Legacy.

Today, the Cash family is previewing the release with a a ballad called “She Used to Love Me a Lot”. “I really love this song,” John Carter Cash told Rolling Stone. “The depth that’s there reminds me of the real serious stuff that Dad did later in his life. And I truly think it’s one of the beautiful undiscovered gems in my dad’s catalog.”
