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,” said 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.”

“I think of all the documentaries made about my dad, he’d be most excited about this one,” said

John Carter Cash

of the film.

Kingdom Story Company created the documentary with exclusive access to over 100 tapes that have never been heard before 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

Johnny Cash

and his music are an indelible part of the fabric of America,” said

Ray Nutt

, CEO of Fathom Events.  “As a huge fan myself, I know that audiences will love hearing his one-of-a-kind music and seeing his command of the stage on the big screen – and being able to live his spiritual transformation through this film will be especially inspiring.”

Recounting a critical period in Cash’s life and career, the documentary takes place 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 iconic country star and his return to an “unshakeable faith” that would influence some of his most famous songs like “The Man Comes Around,” are at the core focus of the film.

“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

,” said Pastor and Producer Greg Laurie of Harvest Ministries. “He was a contradiction at times, but he had a deep faith that he always returned to.” Laurie is also the author of a recent spiritual biography of

Johnny Cash

, and this is his second “American Icon” documentary, having released ”

Steve McQueen

: American Icon” in 2017.
