The Lifetime original movie, Ring of Fire, based on John Carter Cash’s book, “Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash,” premieres this Monday, May 27th at 8 p.m. EDT. June Carter Cash is portrayed by singer-songwriter Jewel and Johnny Cash is played by Matt Ross. In an interview with CBS News, Jewel said, “She was an extraordinary woman and deserved to have her own story told. I think she was often known as the woman behind the man. But she was a comedienne, a writer and a songwriter. She wrote ‘The Ring of Fire.’ So it’s nice for her to get her own story — and not let it be just a Johnny [Cash] and June story. And it was an honor to get to play such a difficult role.”
