Johnny Cash’s America


Commissioned for A&E’s Biography Channel, Johnny Cash’s America blends biography, essay and music to explore the meaning of one American’s life. Chapters develop thematically from Cash’s life: his agricultural roots, finding his voice with the original rock and rollers, his commitment to family and self-education, his anger at the treatment of Native Americans, his refusal to let prisoners be forgotten, the folk scene as a platform, and his support and patriotism of his country – even when questioning the government’s decisions.
