John Mellencamp and Stephen King made a musical together. It's called Ghost
Brothers of Darkland County, and it may be the only musical made by men for men.
(We're fans.) Now it's getting its own album treatment with a roster of a pretty
remarkable pedigree. Performers include Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Rosanne
Cash, Neko Case, Kris Kristofferson, Dave & Phil Alvin, Taj Mahal, Ryan Bingham,
Will Dailey, Matthew McConaughey, Samantha Mathis, and Meg Ryan. (Sorry, we
couldn't resist reprinting that whole list of names.) Did we mention T Bone
Burnett produced the record?
