June Carter Cash and Merle Kilgore wrote “Ring of Fire,” which was made a hit by Johnny Cash. “I respect her songwriting so much, and you realize just how powerful it is when you can sing her song in any way,” Lykke Li said of June Carter Cash in a press statement. “A song of that quality can be a lullaby, it can be a hymn, it can be a country song—and it just stands the test of time.”
