Johnny Cash's 'Out Among The Stars' Lyric Video Released

(Radio.com) It's midnight at a liquor store in Texas; what could go wrong? If Johnny Cash is singing the song, you can bet something will. In a thoroughly modern turn of events, the long-long track - one among a pack of 12 that was recorded over 30 years ago and discovered by his son John Carter Cash - now has an animated lyric video.

This particular song was produced by the legendary Billy Sherrill and is a country music standard composed by Adam Mitchell. It has been performed previously by Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings. Cash puts his own spin on it here, and the animation of a pointed pistol aimed right at the viewer adds some gravity to the experience of listening to it.

The song is a classic murder ballad, detailing a man's death via suicide by cop. This is the second video that features music from Out Among the Stars. A video for another of the album's songs, "She Used to Love Me a Lot," was released this past March.
