Johnny Cash‘s musical legacy continues to live on. Angel Mary and the Tennessee Werewolves have released the country music legend’s classic hit, ‘Folsom Prison Blues,’ with his son, John Carter Cash, producing the single.

“We’re taking a huge step into the unknown by releasing a Johnny Cash hit,” trio member Angel Mary says. “Folsom Prison Blues is a song we hold close to our hearts. We’ve all had our struggles, ups and downs, and times we feel we can’t be free. But there’s always that light of forgiveness at the end of the track.”

Cash took the trio into his famous father’s studio, the Cash Cabin Studio, in Nashville, where some of Cash’s later projects were recorded, and also played acoustic guitar on the song. Their version of ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ was released to radio on July 30 — the same day the Man in Black released the tune in 1955.

The threesome, who also spent time living with Johnny Cash’s sister, Joanne Cash, before recording the song, plan on filming a video in the near future. Keep track of band updates here.
