    Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle Remake Johnny Cash’s ‘Bitter Tears’


    In 1964, country singer Johnny Cash released Bitter Tears: Ballads of the American Indian, a tribute to and meditation on the Native American experience. At the time, Cash believed he had Cherokee ancestry, although genealogical research he conducted later in his life showed this wasn’t the case. Nonetheless, the album stands as a highlight of his career, and arguably the greatest musical statement a non-Native has ever made about the trials and tribulations of American Indians.
