About the Song: I Walk the Line


This song, that Johnny Cash wrote to his first wife, was one that I felt could be a “Twisted Cover” - a song everyone knows that can be taken in a different direction. Slow it down, change the key from major to minor - that seemed to bring another personality to the narrator – rather than affirming his love and devotion, he seems desperate about it. Like it may not be so solid after all. That re-invention feels satisfying. It reveals some “dark inside the light…”

"A stunningly reworked cover of Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line" is like hearing the song for the first time. Chuck uses a great cast of musicians throughout and this album is a welcome breath of fresh air for listeners who crave lasting quality above fickle trends".Steve Morse– longtime Boston Globe Music Critic
