When Cass appeared on the Johnny Cash show, soon after starting her solo career, she sang a beautiful song titled Softly & Tenderly. This songs reminds me of the old gospel hymn by the same name.
Of course the lyrics are different, but it is still a beautiful song. I can’t seem to find any information on this song, concerning the author. She never recorded this song, which is a shame, but at least there is a live recording that can be seen on You Tube. I think Cass would have been an awesome interpreter of gospel songs, and yes she was Jewish, but... so was Jesus!
You can tell how excited she was to perform this song....she just about jumps up and down...very cute performance!
Appreciate any information about this beautiful song that Cass recorded on the Johnny Cash show.
