One of the songs from the Walk the Line soundtrack, "Jackson," will be released as a single, with an accompanying video to match. Johnny and June's classic 1967 duet, featuring the famous opening line, We got married in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout, was redone by the two stars of the film, Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon. The soundtrack has already sold more than 70,000 copies, after just two weeks in the stores.
