NEW YORK (AP) _ The late Johnny Cash's voice can be heard reading the New Testament on a new DVD. "Johnny Cash: Chapter and Verse'' goes on sale Tuesday. The narrated DVD is accompanied by a CD of Cash singing his favorite gospel songs.
Cash's son, John Carter Cash, says years ago, his dad was approached to record the entire New Testament, and it took over 19 hours on quite a few cassette tapes. The younger Cash says hearing his father's voice in the new format is nostalgic, because his family would skip church sometimes and Johnny Cash would read the Bible to them aloud. Cash says the project is a way of keeping his dad's voice alive.
