Country music may contain a great deal of loneliness and heartbreak, but that never kept its major stars from constantly getting together to produce an endless stream of duets. In a career spanning nearly six decades, Johnny Cash had a chance to sing with just about anyone he wanted. Whether it was his wife June Carter ("Jackson") or his closest outlaw pals Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristofferson ("The Highwayman"), Cash amassed a healthy catalog of collaborations over the years. Sony Legacy's Playlist: The Very Best of Johnny Cash Duets culls together 14 classic Johnny Cash duets that pair the Man in Black with such stars as George Jones, Ray Charles, and Bob Dylan.
