"Wildwood Flower" was the last song on the last album June Carter Cash recorded during her lifetime. Given such significance, the producers of the new tribute album "Anchored in Love: A Tribute to June Carter Cash" weren't going to let just anyone tackle that particular tune. But they found a perfect match in country music legend Loretta Lynn, who, at 72 years old, lends her still strong and sparkling voice to a song that, like so much classic folk, is even sadder than it initially sounds.
