Watch Rhett Miller cover Johnny Cash

Literary Hub have been posting some great videos in their ‘Mighty SONG Writers’ series recently, and this week it’s the turn of sometime Old 97s’ frontman Rhett Miller who plays songs from the Great American Songbook including Johnny Cash, Carole King and Otis Redding (before ending with an Old 97’s classic, and why not?)  The series has been created to benefit Mighty Writers, a Philadelphia-based non-profit that teaches reading and writing to thousands of low-income and marginalized students every year, and earlier episodes are worth checking out too, featuring as they do Amanda Shires with Jason Isbell, Marcus Roberts, Jewel, Phil Augusta Jackson, Devon Gilfillian, and Valerie June.
