A segment of the hi-def performance will be featured nationwide in over 3,000 stores on Wal-Mart TV throughout the month of December. “Soundcheck” was taped earlier this fall in a Nashville studio and includes the Georgia-native’s hit singles “Hicktown,” “Why,” “Amarillo Sky” and “Johnny Cash” and the current “Laughed Until We Cried,” as well as exclusive interview footage.
