The conceptual and organizational work on this album has been carried out by John Carter Cash, son of Johnny and June Carter Cashwhich has also co-produced “Songwriter” with David Ferguson. As he himself explains in the announcement that he has shared on instagram, it will be a surprising job: “I think it will turn the world upside down and surprise many people. “Shine, dad.”
