The song is part of the ‘Forever Words’ project which began in 2018 and was expanded in 2020. ‘Forever Words’ puts to music poems by Johnny Cash from the 2016 book ‘Forever Words: The Unknown Poems’. Further expansion is scheduled for February 5 and April 2, 2021.’s Chief Executive Paul Cashmere says, “In a forever evolving world ‘I’ve Been Around’ is a beautiful document of Johnny’s legacy as the torch is passed from one legend to another. Marty Stuart is doing historic work with Marty Stuart’s Congress of Country Music in Philadelphia, Mississippi. ‘I’ve Been Around’ timestamps their crossroads.”

Marty was married to Johnny’s daughter Cindy between 1983 and 1988. He was a member of Johnny Cash’s band from 1980 to 1985 before going solo.
