Brad Paisley Honors Johnny and June in ‘Gold All Over the Ground’ Music Video
To create the music video for “Gold All Over the Ground,” Brad Paisley headed to the only appropriate spot: Cash Cabin Studio, Johnny Cash‘s old log cabin. The result is a sweet tribute to the love story of Cash and wife June Carter Cash, one of the most storied loves in country music history.
Readers can press play above to watch Paisley’s “Gold All Over the Ground” video, which combines footage from Paisley’s visit to Cash Cabin Studio with old clips of Cash, his wife and his family. Not only is the video a neat peek inside Cash’s cabin, it’s also an intimate look at his personal life; as Paisley explores Cash Cabin Studio, viewers get to see some of the artifacts housed there.
“Gold All Over the Ground” takes its lyrics directly from a poem that Cash wrote about Carter Cash in March of 1967. Paisley adds a simple guitar line, mandolin and beautiful backing harmonies to create a touching song about giving it all for the one you love.

First published in 2016 in Cash’s posthumous poetry collection Forever Words, “Gold All Over the Ground” is the first of Cash’s poems to be set to music. Paisley also includes snippets of Cash speaking at both the beginning and the end of the track.
Paisley’s “Gold All Over the Ground” music video is one of 16 that the country star created for the tracks on his newest studio album, Love and War. The record was officially released on April 21, but on Friday (April 28), Paisley will debut the visual version of the album, combining videos for all 16 of the disc’s tracks into country music’s very first visual album.
In addition to Cash, Paisley collaborated with John Fogerty, Mick Jagger, Timbaland and Bill Anderson for Love and War. On Sunday, Paisley celebrated his new album’s release with a show at Tootsie’s in Nashville, featuring appearances from Fogerty, Timbaland and Anderson.
