The double-platinum success of The Legend of Johnny Cash has produced the inevitable sequel. Twenty more cash hits will be collected on The Legend of Johnny Cash, Vol. 2, which hits stores on November 21.

The set picks up some big Cash hits that its predecessor left off, including the #1 hits "Flesh and Blood", "Ballad of a Teenage Queen", "Don't Take Your Guns to Town", "There You Go", "Understand Your Man" and "Daddy Sang Bass."
Nothing is included from Cash's recent #1 album, American V: A Hundred Highways, but fans may be enticed by a new orchestral version of "Bird on a Wire", which appeared in its original form on American Recordings, his 1994 Rick Rubin-produced comeback album.
Also included are American-era covers of Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down" and Sting's "I Hung My Head."

Tim McGraw told Time magazine this week that he's considering running for office in the future:

"One of these days, if the opportunity's there, that's something I'd love to do," he says. "It's a high calling to serve the community, and if you can do it, I think you should."

Should voters ever get the chance to vote for the superstar, they should expect to see a "D" next to his name:

It's innate in me to be a Democrat - a true Southern populist kind of Democrat, " he says. "The issues that matter to me are the social safety nets for people, health care, middle-class concerns. We need to take care of the middle class and the poor in our country. The chasm is getting larger between haves and have-nots, and that's something we need to close down a little bit."

McGraw is currently starring in the film Flicka, which features his fast-rising hit "My Little Girl."
