Johnny Cash was one of the greatest figures in American music history. From his early rockabilly days at Sun Records, to his celebrated prison concerts, Cash was an icon of unmated talent and influence. Playing with everyone from Elvis Presley to Bob Dylan to Willie Nelson, his impact on more than five decades of American music is still being felt today.
Indeed, the recent box office success of the biopic 'Walk The Line' (and the impending success of the DVD release) only serves to reignite interest in John, June and a lot of great music.
This documentary takes you back to his early days as a young boy in Arkansas and revisits the major influences and life altering events of his childhood.
From his early days spent overseas in the Air Force, to his move to Memphis and his first brushes with success, you will see a young Cash forming the foundation for the rest of his extraordinary life.
Come along for the ride as Cash hits the peaks of success, the lows of drug addiction, and the joys of finding true love and salvation. Through it all, his love for the fellow man, kind spirit and sense of humour won him multitudes of friends and fans the world over.
