New releases for Aug. 7, 2012: “We Walk the Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash,” “The Lorax,” Sherrilyn Kenyon’s “Time Untime”
Johnny Cash’s influence on a great variety of musicians was never more apparent than on Friday, April 20, at The Moody Theater in Austin, Texas, when the special concert and 80th birthday tribute, “We Walk the Line: A Celebration of the Music of Johnny Cash,” featured an all-star list of talent paying tribute to the late, great country legend, his music, his roots and his heritage.
Debuting today on CD/DVD, the concert special features a wide spectrum of legendary musicians including Outlaw country pioneers (Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson), contemporary icons (former Tulsan Ronnie Dunn, Evanescence’s Amy Lee) and Grammy Award winners (Pat Monahan of Train and The Carolina Chocolate Drops).
Along with the performances, the CD/DVD features live and portrait photography and bonus feature interviews with all the performers from the show. Legacy Recordings also is releasing a series of Johnny Cash “The Greatest” compilations on CD today.
On DVD and Blu-ray, the feature-length computer-animated adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ classic tale “The Lorax” debuts today on DVD. The blockbuster features the voice talents of Danny DeVito, Taylor Swift, Zac Efron, Ed Helms and Betty White.
New on the bookshelf, paranormal fiction author Sherrilyn Kenyon is releasing the 16th book in her “Dark-Hunters” series, “Time Untime.” Kenyon will visit Oklahoma City to sign copies of her new book at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Barnes & Noble, 6100 N May.
