Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon will be shown in theaters for a limited run from Dec. 5-7. Tickets for the screenings are on sale now.
Presented by Fathom Events, Kingdom Story Company, WTA Media, and Harvest Ministries with Greg Laurie, the documentary was created from over 100 tapes that have never been heard outside of the Cash family. Originally recorded for Cash’s autobiography, the tapes were provided with the blessings and involvement from John Carter Cash, the only child of Cash and June Carter Cash, and his sister Joanne Cash.
“I think of all the documentaries made about my dad, he’d be most excited about this one,” says John Carter Cash.
The film recounts a critical period in Cash’s life and career during the time of his most famous album Man In Black, while the legend was stuck in a cycle of depression and drug addiction. The road to redemption for the icon and his return to an unshakeable faith that would influence some of his most famous songs like “The Man Comes Around,” are the core focus of the film.
The film also features guest appearances by John Carter Cash, Sheryl Crow, Tim McGraw, Marty Stuart, Wynonna Judd, Jimmie Allen, Alice Cooper, Franklin Graham, Joanne Cash Yates, Greg Laurie, and many others.
”Johnny Cash is an American icon who undoubtedly shaped the musical landscape. Behind the fame is the true story of a man who was haunted by his own inner demons, and through facing them, ultimately found an unshakable faith in God,” notes producer Jon Erwin. “At Kingdom Story Company, we strive to bring inspiring true stories to screen. Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon is one such story. We’re excited to share it with you in theaters this December.”
“Here’s the great contradiction–who could be friends with Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Billy Graham all at the same time? The answer, Johnny Cash,” explains Laurie, who is also the author of a recent spiritual biography of Johnny Cash, and released Steve McQueen: American Icon in 2017. “He was a contradiction at times, but he had a deep faith that he always returned to.”
