Question: I have noticed that almost every singing entertainer in the business writes
their own songs or is with someone who writes original songs. How do I make a
cd for example as a tribute to Johnny Cash or Merle Haggard or just an
assortment of great established songs that were not written by me? How do I do
that without getting into copyright problems? Thanks. Joe

Joe, A copyright attorney could best tell you this answer. I write my own work, so I have not had to deal with other peoples copyrights. When performing works or an assortment of works from other artist you will need to register with BMI or ASCAP to pay royalties. If you are doing a unique assortment mix that you made up using some of their established songs, I believe that if you are different enough you should be safe. They have great entertainment attornies online that you could ask this sort of question to. When it comes to legal issues, I let the guys who have the degree in law handle these matters.
