Timberlake Credited With Cash's Star-studded All-black Video

The idea for JOHNNY CASH's stylish final video came from an unlikely source - JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE. The pop superstar was recording tracks with longtime Cash producer RICK RUBIN while the Def Jam Records founder was struggling to come up with a concept for the late country legend's final single GOD'S GONNA CUT YOU DOWN. During one late-night recording session, Timberlake came up with the idea that is the stunning new video. Rubin recalls, "He said, 'This is your single. The video is going to be all these great artists dressed in black.'" The producer then called famous friends like BONO, JOHNNY DEPP, KANYE WEST, KATE MOSS and BRIAN WILSON to appear briefly in the TONY KAYE-directed promo. He adds, "I think everyone's really proud to be in it."
