Sheryl Crow and Johnny Cash Merge Redemption Day With Stunning Music Video

by Paul Cashmere on April 19, 2019

in News

Sheryl Crow first released ‘Redemption Day’ on her second album in 1996. Johnny Cash left us in 2003. In 2010, his version of Sheryl Crow’s ‘Redemption Day’ was released as part of his American Songbook series. Today, 19 April, 2019, the two songs were merged.

Crow’s video for her new version of ‘Redemption Day’ is powerful. She uses the beauty of a piano in an open space aligned with the ugliness of what the world has become with famine, technology, racism, religion, politics, terrorism, war and environmental disaster.

“Perfection is elusive, and usually an illusion – but 16 years after he departed this earth, Johnny Cash helped me realize the perfect version of my song, “Redemption Day,” Sheryl Crow said today in a statement.

The new version takes the Crow original and adds the 2010 released Cash version with both singers coming together for the second half of the song as the visual show a child witnesses the destruction is disbelief.

The idea to merge the songs was approved by Cash’s song John Carter Cash. Sheryl previewed the video for ‘Redemption Day’ with John Carter Cash on Thursday and has made the video available worldwide on Good Friday, 19 April 2019.
