April 10, 1969: Bob Dylan recorded his latest album, Nashville Skyline in February this year over the course of four days in Columbia Records Studio A in Nashville. Johnny Cash was also scheduled to be recording in the same studio which has been reported has a coincidence, however given Bob Johnson was producing both albums it seems more likely the scheduling was planned.

Dylan and Cash spent two days in the studio together, recording 15 songs. Only a duet of Dylan's "Girl From The North Country", originally released on The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan made it's way onto Nashville Skyline.

Here is the track list recorded by Dylan and Cash in Nashville.

1. One Too Many Mornings

2. Good Ol' Mountain Dew

3. I Still Miss Someone

4. Careless Love

5. Matchbox

6. That's Alright Mama

7. Big River

8. Girl Of The North Country

9. I Walk The Line

10. You Are My Sunshine

11. Ring Of Fire

12. Guess Things Happen That Way

13. Just A Closer Walk With Thee

14. T is for Texas

15. Blue Yodel #1
