Johnny Cash’s granddaughter Grace June Cash is featured in a video for “Hello Out There” from the legendary musician’s new album Songwriter.

“Hello out there/This is planet Earth/Calling Calling Calling Calling Calling,” Cash sings before continuing, “Hello out there/our net worth is/Falling Falling Falling Falling Falling.”

Songwriter is the 72nd studio album and fifth posthumously released studio album by Johnny Cash. It was released on June 28, 2024, through Mercury Nashville.

Produced by Johnny Cash, John Carter Cash, David R. Ferguson, Josh Matas, and Mike Daniel, the album contains eleven original songs by Cash.

The black and white video for “Hello Out There” was directed by Matt Paskert. It follows Grace on an adventure where she comes upon the Cash Cabin, Johnny’s cabin in Hendersonville, Tennessee, where he wrote and recorded some of his final songs.”Directing the video for ‘Hello Out There’ and the visuals for Johnny Cash’s Songwriter album was an unexpected and profound honor,” said Paskert. “What truly set this project apart for me was our commitment to honoring the Cash legacy. We had the privilege of filming entirely on the Cash family’s property, starring Grace June Cash, who is a spitting image of her grandmother.”

“The visuals are full of authenticity, showcasing many genuine Johnny Cash artifacts… from his personal Bible to original handwritten lyric sheets, and much much more,” he added. “A heartfelt thank you to John Carter Cash, Ana Cristina Cash, Grace Cash and the entire Cash estate team for not only their trust, but also their involvement and support in bringing the Cash Songwriter legacy to life on screen.”
